During pregnancy, changes to your body can result in pain around the pelvic area. Hormonal fluctuations, muscle imbalances, and increased pressure on the pelvic floor can lead to discomfort up to and during childbirth.
Many women assume that their bodies will return to normal as it heals during the postpartum period. While some changes during pregnancy might only be temporary, others can be permanent. Plenty of women experience pelvic pressure postpartum, which can last months to years after childbirth.
