QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hello, I just had a baby who's about a week old. When I first learned I was pregnant-3 months, I had my gallbladder taken out.

After I gave birth to my daughter I'm getting the same pains I was experiencing with my gallbladder but I have no gallbladder.

What can the pain be? Also, I noticed a foul smell in my vagina area?

Please help.

ANSWER

These symptoms need to be reported to your provider right away, if you haven't already done so. Chances are they are no big deal, but there is a chance that you have an infection that is causing the pain, in which case it needs to be treated.
