Postpartum fatigue may be a symptom of significant medical or psychiatric illness and must be distinguished from tiredness, which is a common adaptive response after delivery. Anemia, infections, thyroid disorders, mood disorders and cardiomyopathy are important causes of fatigue in the postpartum period. Recognition and treatment of these conditions improves the medical care of women following delivery.
