Her sympathetic nervous response, the fight-flight-freeze response, is almost always heightened, especially in births that are outside of the home or that have complications. It is absolutely critical to support the mother in bringing her nervous system out of a sympathetic response and back into rest & digest mode so her body and mind can relax and heal.
