with my 4th child i had afterpains but this time they r worse i saw my midwife today and since haveing my son 9days ago no one has felt my stomach to see if its getting better i told her today bout the bleeding and pains and yett again ive got an infection in the stomach so much for proper after care i saw a midwife 3 times since the birth and today got discharged which isnt right they seem to think that once u have had 1 child u seem to know whats what well its not right

the midwives (and a friend) told me that the afterbirth pains get worse and worse with each baby. I had bad afterbirth pains with my first (and only so far).

I am almost 3 weeks postpartum and I still had heavy bleeding and pain until about 10-14 days after birth - but I had an episiotomy too. If you are soaking a large pad in under an hour or passing any clots bigger than a golf ball - you need to be seen immediately, otherwise you should be fine.
