Top 7 Homeopathic Medicines For Weakness After Childbirth

Weakness after childbirth is medically termed as postpartum fatigue. Quite common, it has a negative impact on the well-being and emotional health of a woman. Postpartum fatigue symptoms include feeling extremely tired, exhausted, lack of energy, mood swings, poor concentration, anxiety and low mood. Other symptoms include body aches, joint pains, backache, decreased motivation and decreased interest in activities which she once enjoyed. After childbirth, every woman feels tired in varying degrees. It may remain from a few weeks to months. The duration and intensity of this fatigue varies from case to case subject to a few factors like age of the mother, overall general physical health of the mother, total sleeping hours and if there is any support system to take care of the baby or not. Weakness from certain reasons is understandable like exhaustion from labor delivery, breastfeeding, sleepless nights occurring due to taking care of newborn and hormonal imbalance. However, intense and constant weakness may be due to other reasons that needs to be looked into. These reasons may include nutritional deficiencies. Besides, some health issues may also be leading to weakness after childbirth. These include excessive blood loss, anemia (a condition in which there are not enough healthy red blood cells – RBCs to carry oxygen to different body tissues for proper functioning) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland). Weakness could be a part of the postpartum depression which refers to depression that a woman might face after giving birth to a baby. Its symptoms include sadness, weeping spells without any reason, mood swings, hating oneself, feeling of worthlessness, loss of sleep, changes in appetite, hopelessness, lack of interest in the things that were once enjoyed most and thoughts of harming the baby or oneself. The reason behind postpartum depression is attributed to a quick drop in hormones after delivery of the child. Other factors may also contribute like physical changes in the body during pregnancy and post-delivery, reduced sleeping hours, worrying about parenting and being a good mother, having issues in relationship with the partner, no family support, financial problems, family history of depression and underactive thyroid gland.
