Eight Strange Symptoms After Giving Birth

There are some aspects of postpartum recovery you are probably (vaguely) ready for — the bleeding, the exhaustion, the soreness. But there are actually some pretty weird postpartum symptoms that might not be on your radar.⁣

Most of the time, these are either related to postpartum bleeding, or a change in hormones. But, if you’ve never had a baby before, they can definitely take you by surprise!⁣

So, here’s a list of strange postpartum symptoms for you to be on the look out for, or reference should you find yourself suddenly chilled, sweating buckets, or anything else in between!⁣

1. Chills⁣
2. Night Sweats⁣
3. Heart palpitations⁣
4. Hair loss⁣
5. Weird Bleeding Smell⁣
6. Constipation⁣
7. Gas Bubbles / Gas Pain⁣
8. Perineal / rectum pain⁣

Bonus: Postpartum itching.⁣ @juna.moms

I had uncontrollable chills and heart palpitations one my first day home, and turned out I caught sepsis. Had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance. I attended birth class and they taught a lot of what might go wrong during birth, but there was nothing about complications and life threatening symptoms after the birth. My midwife at the hospital discharged me with a mild fever saying it was ok and normal. And the paramedics thought I had a panic attack and did not think of possible blood poisoning. I hope more people know about the possibility of septicaemia and how this can turn fatal 🙁

Let’s not mention the feeling of the uterus shrinking. 😂 I think above all of these, that was by far the strangest feeling.
