Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
Always blood during birth. Pretty much unavoidable as all the "connections" between the mom and baby are separated and the placenta is engorged with it. It all comes out. Also, there can be tearing as the baby passes, which will add to the bleeding a little.
Our midwives said that anything under half a litre during birth is normal (most experiencing I think between 200-250 ml) and more in considered hemorrhaging and requires real attention. Also, bleeding may not stop, even if the original is normal, and that also requires medical attention.
It's amazing to me that, unlike in the real world, people on the internet will wear "everyone thinks I'm a moron" as a badge of honour.
