Pelvic Girdle Pain

Has anyone ever had to suffer with this? I think I have it because the pelvic discomfort I expirienced through my last pregnancy has NOT gone away, and has actually gotten worse. If anyone has any advice i'd be really grateful! Thanks.

  • My midwife suggests that post-partum moms wear girdles, until the relaxin (the hormone that loosens all your joints during pregnancy) wears off and the muscles have had a chance to strengthen and support the bones again.

    You probably need to strengthen in general. One key reason lots of women end up with skeletal pain is because we're typically better at flexibility than strength, so things get pulled apart instead of held up.
