Do rabbits bleed before they give birth?

Not always but quite often. Like most mammals bearing live young, giving birth is a painful process for the mother and often is accompanied by at least some bleeding. Often long before the babies are actually born, contractions and the movement of the babies along the birth canal can push out blood and mucus first.
