Hello Mrs. Langley and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Symptoms such as tiredness
, inability to concentrate, lack of energy / drive, poor sleep, etc. after the childbirth could be indicative of a post-natal depression
. This can happen in about 10 % of women in the first few months after childbirth. However, there can be other medical conditions like anaemia
, high sugars, high BP, thyroid
disorders, and even heart problems, which can cause these symptoms.
So, I would suggest that you have a proper medical evaluation to rule out these conditions. If it turns out to be a post-natal depression, then there are effective treatment options available in the form of medication or psychological therapies which can help you come out of this phase soon.
