Pregnancy Unbalanced Pelvis Correction

Pregnancy Unbalanced Pelvis Correction
Typically, an expecting mother gains 25-30 pounds her pregnancy. This added weight can not only cause discomfort in the lower back but can cause pain throughout the entire lower body by putting pressure on the spine, specifically the sciatic nerve. This new weight can also cause the pelvis to be misaligned, which leaves less room for the baby to develop, and assume the correct position for birth.

Initially, it felt like he was faking it. Boy was I wrong!   Beyond the extreme exhaustion he experienced, chronic fatigue caused problems with his concentration and short-term memory. He had trouble holding normal conversations, being around large groups of people and accomplishing every day tasks such as grocery shopping. Occasionally, we went on walks together. After one block, I watched him become exhausted. My friend, the former Division I athlete, became exhausted after a one block walk. There was no faking. He was miserable. He was tired.
