Is it absolutely necessary for your wife to work. Will it be possible to consider other alternatives like working from home? etc? She can be at home with the baby and at the same time work, while the nanny takes care of the child. If the anxiety
is due to the fact that she is away from her little baby and is worried about the safety of the child, no amount of medication can make it better.
Headache can be due to 2 reasons either the medication or anxiety itself.
could be another cause of headaches
. Make sure she drinks at least 8-10 glasses of water a day.
I would advise her to sign up for yoga
classes which might help her de- stress
Continue to follow her doctor's advise. If it is ok by the doc, regular exercise 30-45 minutes a day would also help her.
What your wife is experiencing is a temporary phase and she should feel better soon, provided she has a lovely, supportive family who understands her, which I'm quite sure she has.
Hope this helps.
