Headaches are a common complaint for most women during their lifetime, including gestation and puerperium. Tension-type headaches and migraine flare-ups are the most common headache complications after delivery, but the differential diagnosis of postpartum headache is broad. The clinician must distinguish common headache syndromes from dangerous causes of postpartum headache. We will focus on early postpartum headaches in the form of case discussions that will include clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, and treatment.
