1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

A good amount of bleeding is normal after delivery.
Dic is a condition where blood clotting factors are used up (usually due to massive hemorrhage) resulting in an inability for blood to clot where it needs to. Most bleeding at the time of delivery stops because uterine muscle contracts over big blood vessels in the uterus, so dic usually is not an issue.
