Chest pain from the lower ribs after child birth. What is causing this?

4 months ago, my wife delivered our second baby, it was a healthy baby boy. There were no complications in the pregnancy, no issues, very similar to her first pregnancy and delivery. Delivery was normal, with no C-section. My wife is very strong, so she only took 2 to 3 weeks to rest, but now 4 months after delivery she is having some kind of a chest pain , she can t described it but she feels it comes from her lower ribs... rib pain?

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
This pain may not have any relation to the delivary, It may be the pain due to the hypertension , or muscular pain.
What ever the reason may be consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment. Some people may have hypertension in perpurium and may effect the chest or the brain.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts,and
protein rich foods to hasten the recovery.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
