A woman’s body undergoes major physiological, structural and emotional changes during pregnancy.
Some women experience muscle and joint pain. Stress, anxiety, depression and fatigue can also be problematic for pregnant women.
Pregnancy-related low back and pelvic pain has an impact on daily life for many women. A recent study has shown this type of pain is prevalent in 72% of pregnant women.
