This blog post contains links to the articles that I have written on many of the common muscular and skeletal conditions, aches and pains that occur during pregnancy. I have divided them up into regions of the body to help guide you towards figuring out what could be causing your symptoms and what you can do about it.
On the other hand, If your have been given a diagnosis, I hope that these posts will help you to understand your symptoms better and empower you with knowledge and a bit of hope that there is something that can be done to improve your quality of life.
I want to encourage you to let your carer such as your midwife, GP or Obstetrician know of any new or unusual symptoms that you may be experiencing no matter how trivial you think that it might be. Please be aware that the information within these posts are of a general nature and are intended for educational purposes only and is in no way a substitute for proper medical care.
Wishing you all the best on your amazing journey to motherhood whether it be the 1st or 7th time!
