Everyone is different. Of course you bleed a bit after your baby is born. Some start having periods as soon as they have their babies, some don't. I know for a fact that breastfeeding moms usually don't get their periods until after they stop breastfeeding. At least that is what my body did after my kids where born. My oldest breastfed until she was 6 months and my period didn't start until I was 9 months postpartum.
