Is it normal to bleed with clots after delivery ?

I had a baby 7 weeks ago and I stopped bleeding a few weeks ago. Today I went to the bathroom and after I wiped I noticed that I started bleeding again and I also notice a clot that looked like pieces of chewed up meat I ate yesterday. Is this normal or is something wrong?

welcome to HealthcareMagic
Congrats for having baby.
If the bleeding you had is dark and clotted it can be collected blood coming out.But still it will be advisable to consult your treating doctor who delivered you.Consult her/him to get examined to rule out any problem.
