In brief: Yes

If the baby is large and your pubic angle of the bone is narrow, bruising sometimes occurs.
Mother nature is adaptable and will often allow the place where the pubic bones come together in the front to slightly separate the cartilage that holds the bone together to allow a baby passage.
