Answer: Pubic bone pain in pregnancy is fairly common. A condition known as symphysis pubis diastasis (SPD) often causes this pain. Usually in later pregnancy, the hormone relaxin causes the pelvis, particularly at the pubic bone, to loosen. In general, this is a good thing as it makes birth easier for mom and baby. However, sometimes the separation is exaggerated and can become quite painful for the mother at the end of pregnancy or in the early postpartum period. For some women, certain movements can be painful. In particular, getting out of bed, getting into the bathtub or car, putting on pants, sitting for long stretches, or performing repetitive tasks are signs that u may be experiencing pain. Stabilize your pelvis as much as you can via a pregnancy/maternity binder, like the Prenatal Cradle. A flexible belt or binder works better than a rigid one. This can also help you prevent further injury from having a less stable pelvis. This may help in the long term. While it may be time intensive, many say it's worth it. You could also ask for advice on what you could do at home, to decrease your visits to the office. Avoid situations that cause pain. For example, sit down to put pants on, or sit on the side of the tub and swing over both legs together. It is best to avoid standing for long periods of time. If you must stand, wear sensible shoes and try to move around, even if this means you simply shift from foot to foot every so often. You can also use a small stool or box to prop a foot up as you stand. Heat can be a source of pain relief. Use a rice sock or hot water bottle to help provide moist heat to your pelvis. This is perfectly safe and does not involve medications. It can also be done multiple times a day. Certain forms of exercise can help. Ask your doctor . The buoyancy involved in swimming, for example, can provide pain relief.
