Period after birth

Hi, I have just had a baby (almost 8 weeks old) and I haven''t had my period yet. This is my third child and I am 39 years old. I also had a tubal ligation done during the C-Section. I had very heavy bleeding after the birth for about 2 weeks but nothing since (+_ 6 weeks now). Is this normal? When should I expect my period to start?

This is normal. If you are breastfeeding, you may not have a period till you stop.
