Anyone suffer from postpartum migraines with auras/headaches?

Anyone ever have to deal with migraines with auras/headaches that happen ONLY after having a baby? This is my 3rd baby and I got a few with my first child (a son), and then got them for about 6 weeks right after having my 2nd child (a daughter), and here I am 10 days out from having my 3rd child (a daughter) and I have had them everyday. The usually begin with an aura. It sucks... I wish I knew what causes them or how to handle them better. I am interested to know if anyone else has had a similiar experience.

    have you seen a chiropractor, and are you drinking enough water?
