Why


Carrying a baby inside you changes your centre of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, which can lead to your pelvis being pulled forward as well as other changes to your posture. Add to that the extra weight of the baby and you may find you've got an aching lower back.
