Largely because of the physical and hormonal changes to their bodies, many pregnant women can experience various kinds of back pain.

Here's a look at some of the kinds of pain pregnant women are prone to:

  • Coccyx (tailbone) pain
  • Groin pain
  • Pelvic pain (which usually begins during pregnancy, but typically during the end of the final trimester).
  • Pubic pain
  • Sacroiliac joint pain (the sacroiliac joint connects the sacrum, or triangular bone at the bottom of the spine, with the pelvis, or iliac bone).
  • Upper leg pain
