Feeling a little bit of tiredness and discomfort after childbirth is a common scenario in women, but it is perfectly normal. Some women may even experience minor bleeding for a few days after giving birth to a child. If you are experiencing any such symptoms, do not worry, because proper rest will make you feel better in a couple of days.

However, in some cases, real medical emergencies do occasionally happen in the weeks or days following childbirth. So, if you are experiencing a tremendous amount of pain, it would be better to get in touch with the care providers at our free womens clinic and get help.

Many women in the country have no clue on what are the postnatal symptoms that need emergency treatment. If you are one among them, schedule a visit to our affordable health clinic today. Our expert caregivers will answer all your queries and give a clear idea on the post-childbirth symptoms that need immediate treatment.

Nevertheless, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms already, reach out to our free womens clinic for medical help.

Heavy or Sudden Blood Loss

If you are experiencing sudden or heavy blood loss, which is accompanied by signs such as dizziness, feeling faint, racing heartbeat, and sweating, you need medical help. If the bleeding happens regularly and if you are experiencing severe pain instantaneously, you need to contact our affordable health clinic for proper medical attention and care.

Severe or Persistent Headache

A persistent or severe headache might be due to the side effect of an epidural or spinal anesthesia and it will feel a lot like a migraine. However, a bad headache in the first 3 days after childbirth can be also a sign of pre-eclampsia. Either way, it is best to consult with a health care provider and get immediate help.

Raised Blood Pressure

Our free womens clinic will record your blood pressure a few hours after you have given birth. If the diastolic rate is recorded as more than 90, then you might be either at risk of eclampsia or having pre-eclampsia. We will constantly monitor you for the next few hours and check whether you are experiencing any other symptoms of eclampsia such as sickness, blurred vision, or a headache. If you show any such symptoms during the observatory period, we will put forward an effective treatment plan for you.
