Changes in Posture

A pregnancy will inevitably change the way your body functions. One of the most common changes you may begin to notice is the shift in your center of gravity. This change generally means your posture and movements will gradually begin to adjust to the weight of your child. Unfortunately, this shift can give way to debilitating back pain.

Hormonal Alterations

As you wait for your baby’s birth, your body will begin to prepare for the birthing process. Relaxin, a hormone made by the body, is produced to relax the ligaments and joints in your pelvic area. However, this hormone can come with a major drawback. The hormone’s qualities that allow your pelvic area to prepare can consequently loosen the ligaments that support the spine. This, in turn, can lead to instability of the spine and pain in the back.
