hi there, ESR is a short form for erythrocyte sedimentation rate and it is a parameter which does not give any definitive diagnosis but is indicative of illness,if increased. But as you have just delivered the value can be high and at the same time insignificant as pregnancy is known to increase the value. I would suggest you not to worry unduly about it but repeat it after 6 weeks. If it is coming down then you can forget about it and enjoy motherhood, but if not then get yourself evaluated with routine tests and a good general check up by your family physician.
