In brief: What's causing it?
Immobility of what: one part of your body or your whole being? Must make diagnosis then treat it.
Suspect severe depression or stroke. Depression during or after delivery (post-partum) is part genetic predisposition, hormonal and early life experience. Professional help and medication is obligatory. Forget breast feeding and use medication as directed by the experienced professional treating you.

In brief: Increased DVT risk
Pregnancy increases the risk of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by a factor of about 30, over the baseline risk for a woman.
Decreased mobility would further increase that risk.
