Is it normal to have a heavy first period after giving birth? Should I be worried?

In brief: Normal

A heavy period after childbirth is nothing to be concerned about.
Periods can change completely after giving birth. You will just have to wait to see if your periods resume to their pre-childbirth pattern or not. Also, birth control can also affect your periods.
