Muscles and Joints

Because of the exertion that you demonstrated during labor, the first few days you may experience the following aches and pains.

  • Muscle aches and fatigue - especially in your shoulders, neck and arms.
  • Joint stiffness as a result of the redistribution of fluids as a result of leg swelling and intravenous fluids given to you during labor.
