Aches and pains, especially in the lower back and pelvic area are very common during and after pregnancy, but this does not mean that they cannot be improved with supported self-management.  The resources below provide a number of useful links to ways to keep your body healthy during pregnancy and when you become a new mother. 

However, it is important for you and your baby that you always feel confident that any symptoms you experience during this period are “normal”; you must access your GP practice team for advice if you are unsure; depending on your concern, your midwife, GP or local physiotherapist will be able to provide specialist advice and support to ensure your experience is as worry-free and as supported as possible.
