After having a baby you might need to take some pain relief for one reason or another. It could be that you've had stitches, you might be suffering from hormonal headaches or even a sore back.

If you are breastfeeding your baby, you shouldn't take any analgesia containing codeine. This is because in some women it metabolises too quick meaning the baby could suffer from respiratory depression.

Paracetamol is generally safe to use, along with ibuprofen but always check with your care provider if you are unsure.
