Hello, Your wife might be experience jont and muscle pains due to delivery. Ask your wife to take calcium , vitamins, minerals supplements regularly to strengthen her bones and improve her health. If there is severe swelling in joints then consult an orthopaedician for further evaluation and management.

Please consult an Orthopaedician. Most possibly the pain is due to weakness from childbirth.
But if you have joint swelling then you need to be concerned. Please consult an Orthopaedician for a direct consultation.
