Thanks for posting your query.
Constipation is very common during pregnancy.
Because of constipation, hemorrhoids can occur.
The bleeding she is having could be due to hemorrhoids.
She needs to take high fiber diet, fiber supplements like metamucil and drink lot of fluids for relief from constipation.
