Is it normal for your first period after having a baby to be really heavy?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Definitely
Pretty much you've gone over 10 months without having a cycle and that 1st cycle will typically be heavier and more painful.
As long as you are not bleeding more than a pad/hour, just stay hydrated.
