Bleeding during perineal rehabilitation

In the weeks following your delivery, bleeding may occur, especially after perineal rehabilitation sessions.

  • Long before your period returns, you may notice some bleeding, possibly containing clots.
  • This is part of the uterus healing process.
  • Between four and six weeks after birth, your gynecologist or midwife will advise you to start perineal rehabilitation.
  • Whether your bleeding started before these sessions or not, your health professional will be able to advise you.
