In brief: Every

Every woman is different.
Typically a woman bleeds for about 6 weeks after childbirth. However, the fact that you are changing your pad every hour is concerning due to the fact that you may be anemic. Regardless, your doctor needs to be informed of the heavy bleeding. He/she may will likely want you to come in for a pelvic exam and testing for anemia. Best of luck.
