Why is it that a woman who has given birth to a boy is unclean for 30 days while to a girl is 60 days unclean according to the Old Testament laws?

Does this give any clue medically that a mother who gives birth to a girl would be weaker, thus needing 60 days (2 months) of rest? Why the difference of unclean days depending on the gender of the baby?
