I shook like crazy after my homebirth. My midwife told me it was low bloodsugar levels. It stopped after I had some juice and an apple, så I think she was right.

I shook at my last birth, but mine was trauma induced. I was shaking from the pain, and everytime the L&D nurses would "massage" my uterus it would hurt REALLY badly and I would start shaking again. I'd finally get the shaking to stop and it was like they took that as a sign I needed to be tortured again, and they would do it again, and the shaking would start up again.
That said, I lost more blood with the last delivery than I remember losing with previous ones, so that could have something to do with it.
