The colour of the lochia flow changes over time. It's red for the first three to four days, before turning into a pink-brown flow. The amount of lochia flow usually tails off with time, getting lighter around the third week after delivery.

If you pass large clots, tell your doctor as this may be a sign of a possible issue.
