Backpain In Pregnancy

Anna Omoriegbe Thu 27-Oct-22 16:10:04

It is very common to get backache or back pain during pregnancy, especially in the early stages. During pregnancy, the ligaments in your body naturally become softer and stretch to prepare you for labour. This can put a strain on the joints of your lower back and pelvis, which can cause back pain.

Tips to reduce back pain

Practice good posture. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts forward. 

Get the right gear. Wear low-heeled — not flat — shoes with good arch support. 

Lift properly. 

Sleep on your side. 

Try heat, cold or massage.

Include physical activity in your daily routine. 

Consider complementary therapies.
