In a very short period the female body withstands immense hormonal, postural, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory changes. This impact does not go unnoticed by us. 

With all of these changes in mind things can begin to feel different. This includes experiencing new areas of pain in your back, pelvis, pubic bone, hips, ribs and wrist pain. Along with pelvic floor symptoms such as bladder leakage, constipation and painful sex, these concerns can continue into your postpartum period.
