Pregnancy is a unique and special time for a woman as she watches her body change and become aware of the child that grows inside her. For most women, pregnancy and childbirth is a positive experience, and the bodily changes occur without pain and dysfunction in the body. However for some women, the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy, or the strain of childbirth itself, can create dysfunction in the low back, pelvis, or rib cage that leaves the mother struggling to cope with looking after their newborn.
