Drugs After Birth??

🤰🏼
Sorry if the title is misleading... I was just wondering do you usually get something stronger than OTC pain meds after a vaginal birth? How does that work with breastfeeding? I'm just nervous about being in a lot of pain and being alone with the baby(my husband is deployed). Or is the pain not bad enough to need anything stronger? Random last minute thoughts before my due date lol.
