Pregnancy and early motherhood can cause all sorts of pains and general discomfort. Lower back pain is common during pregnancy, as the weight of the baby begins to take its toll. Sciatic pain is also really common during pregnancy. All of my babies had a habit of settling in right on to of my sciatic nerve and it could be mighty uncomfortable at times, especially during late pregnancy.
Carrying the weight of a baby and then a toddler on my hip most of the time also took its toll. Your hips end up in all sorts of funny positions and over time that can cause aches and pains.
It doesn’t end after the baby is born. Breastfeeding through the night, sleeping in odd positions and carrying extra post-baby weight can all cause pain and discomfort for mamas.
I’ve never been one to knock back the painkillers but during pregnancy and breastfeeding in particular its important to be careful about what you do take.
