Setback?: Unsure what you mean by "setback" and in which aspect of a woman's life you are referring to after childbirth. However, some women may experience a dip in their mood following childbirth associated with feeling overwhelmed, tearful and sad shortly after having a baby. This is usually short lived though in some patients, it may signal a more serious condition called post partum depression.
