Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is pain in the lower back, around the pelvis and in the legs during pregnancy and/or after the delivery. During pregnancy the pelvic ligaments soften and the pelvis becomes less stable. This softening is physiological, it occurs with every pregnancy. However, due to strain, complaints may arise. Read more >
