11 Natural Pregnancy Back Pain Treatments

Pregnancy back pain is actually a good sign. It means your baby is growing. It typically occurs when your uterus, which normally resides in the pelvis suddenly moves to the abdomen.

It typically starts in the second half of pregnancy between the fifth and seventh months and affects fifty to eighty percent of expecting mothers.

The pain may only affect the lower back or may spread to the butt, thighs, and legs, leading to sciatica symptoms. The pain can get worse with activity and interrupt sleep.
