Mid and Low Back Pain

Postnatal Mid and Low Back Pain

Mid and low back pain are both very common but not normal following the birth of your baby. The postnatal period, or fourth trimester, can be a challenging time for all as mothers recovering from labor and delivery while tending and caring for a newborn. The physical demands of nursing, feeding, bathing and caring for a newborn are tremendous. Following the delivery of the baby, the mother’s body is fatigued, weak and tired. There is much potential for injury.
