Pain

The pain

During vaginal delivery, all structures – including the coccyx – remain stretched following the passage of your baby. This is not serious. But pain, sometimes persistent, can occur. It may be necessary
to adapt your sitting position (e.g. by sitting on a swimming ring) or to undergo physiotherapy as prescribed by your doctor.

Painkillers (paracetamol or anti-inflammatory drugs), compatible with breastfeeding, can lessen pain.

Ligament twinges

I have twinges in the lower abdomen, what should I do?

In early pregnancy and until the middle of pregnancy, pain felt in the lower abdomen towards the folds of the groin often corresponds to "ligament twinges". The uterus is supported on both sides by ligaments that stretch during its growth, leading to pain that can be very uncomfortable. However, this is not abnormal.

During the second half of pregnancy these twinges can be contractions.
