7 ways to alleviate pregnancy back pain

Why me?!

Unfortunately, you may experience back pain throughout pregnancy.

Pregnant women experience discomfort in a variety of ways, but one of the most persistent can be back pain. Weight gain, a shift in your center of gravity as your uterus grows, and hormones that loosen your joints can all contribute to this issue. Even if you are gaining just the right amount of weight and doing everything right, you may still experience back pain. So, the most important question is: what can you do about it?
