Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

After a delivery, it may take up to a year for the hormones to stabilize.

Please do not worry about it.
Just get a recent TSH level and ultrasound scan done.

If that is normal, there is no cause for concern.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Take care
