Do your hips dislocate during childbirth?

No: Your hip joints are the most stable joints in your body. They will not dislocate during childbirth. There will be changes in your pelvis to accommodate childbirth, but this does not affect your hips.

Often surgery: Depends on what seems to be the cause. If there are recurrent dislocations often a revision surgery is needed to make the hip more stable.
