Carrying the weight of a growing baby puts a lot of physical stress onto your body. As well as the increase in weight and the change in your centre of gravity, there is the slackening off of your joints as your body prepares for the birthing process.

All these features make your body more vulnerable to injury. So please be careful and avoid any heavy lifting, especially of toddlers. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is very gentle and supports you with treatment and advice to ensure you are as well as possible when your time comes to give birth.

Pelvic girdle pain and pubic symphysis pain can be treated.

First Aid for pelvic pain during pregnancy  

It is important that you stay aware of your posture as your baby grows. Try to tighten your buttocks to keep yourself upright.

Ask your toddler to climb onto a chair to be lifted up from the chair rather than from the ground and climb into the car seat themselves.

Support your pelvis with either a scarf tied tightly around your hips, or a pelvic belt to reduce the excess movement through the pelvic joints, especially for a second pregnancy.

Use a cold pack on your low back to reduce aching. Wrap a cold pack (a bag of frozen peas works well) in a couple of tea towels and place it over the area of pain for 20 minutes only. Put it back in the freezer for at least an hour to allow your skin to recover, then repeat. If the cold pack is too cold for comfort, put another tea towel around it.
