In brief: Postpartum clots

After delivery heavy bleeding and clots are rather common due to the relaxation of the enlarged uterus.
It often requires massages of the uterus and intravenous dilute Pitocin (oxytocin) to help contract the uterus.After all these routine measures if one is still passing large clots, it needs immediate attention!you could become anemic real quick and also may go into shock.All residents are aware of this.
