Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Postpartum period is a phase where numerous physiological changes occur. Every system goes into the revision of the functioning and metabolic activities to suit the present physical status. Pregnant states and Nonpregnant states have different physiological norms.

Changes occur in the blood volume and blood pressure, this can lead one into a state of lightheadedness giddiness due to fluctuations in the blood pressure. The transition may take a few weeks to a few months an can go upto 6 to 8 months of post partum period.

There is no need for any sort of active intervention here.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards,
