yes it's normal after normal or premature delivery difference is that mother is lactating and physiological changes revert quicker sorry for the premature baby who died uterus will continue to shrink and get back to normal size after 6 weeks with lactation, shrinkage is quicker hope that she's not losing blood get an ultrasound done to make sure that there are no pieces of placenta as retained

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user it seems like you have some inflammatory or degenerative process going on in your joints, it will be best if you visit a rheumatologist and get your self properly examined and investigated, once diagnosed giving relief is no big problem.
