Answer: Hi.. Dear back pain during pregnancy is common, because the ligaments in your body naturally becomes softer and stretch to prepare you for labour. This puts a strain on joints of your lower back and pelvis, which causes back pain. It will be fine after your delivery. Try using Maternity pillow, it will give you some comfort.
