I took CLO throughout my last pregnancy (along with drinking a RRL, alfalfa & nettle tea regularly), and bled much less than the first time, when I had a pretty bad PPH (caused by poor third-stage management, IMO). I haven't heard anything about vitamin E's blood thinning properties, but I do know that it's supposed to promote a firm attachment between the placenta and the uterine wall (I was prescribed it after being diagnosed with a subchorionic hemorrhage, and this is common protocol to help keep the placenta attached)--so you're not supposed to take it in the third trimester, because (the theory goes) it can make delivery of the placenta a problem. Which I suppose could cause bleeding in itself. Not sure whether there's any solid evidence for that, though.
