It will go on its own

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Headache post delivery is a common phenomenon. This happens due to hemodynamic changes that occur soon after delivery. The change in the blood volume is one amongst such changes. The changes will normalize in few days without causing any serious complications.

There is no need to worry. She may have to maintain good hydration to get rid of such headaches soon.

Taking pain killers would affect the baby as it can cause side effects in mother and some drugs to get secreted in milk.

Hope, I answered your query.
