Why is it easy to get back pain during pregnancy?
After pregnancy, due to the increasing uterus, the physical center of gravity saw the forward movement.

1. Normal physiological reactions during pregnancy
As the fetus grows, pregnant mommy will gradually increase after pregnancy, and the body’s fat content will become higher.Among them, the biggest change is the belly. Due to the continuous increase of the fetus, the belly bulges, and these edema increases the pressure of the waist.At the same time, with the changes in hormones during pregnancy, the elasticity of muscles during pregnancy will be a little worse, so the muscle elasticity of the waist will weaken, which will easily lead to back pain.
2. Calcium deficiency
During pregnancy, because the calcium required for fetal growth and development is completely derived from the mother’s body, the amount of calcium consumed by pregnant moms is far greater than that of ordinary people. Therefore, many pregnant moms are prone to calcium deficiency, and calcium deficiency can cause back pain.It is recommended that expectant mothers pay special attention to appropriate calcium during pregnancy.
