What causes pubic bone pain in pregnant women?

What causes pubic bone pain in pregnant women?

Let me help: Pubic bone pain in pregnancy is also know as pubic symphysis diastasis.

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 pain for the mother at the end of pregnancy ...Read more
