Earlier, our ancestors used to carry their kids on their backs using a piece of cloth sewn into the bag and perform all the activities. Nowadays, women need to perform daily chores and office work besides nursing the infant. The baby carriers provide convenience to breastfeed the baby at times besides carrying the baby at an ease providing balance and comfort to the baby as well.

Listed below are the causes of postpartum back pain and the preventive measures that can be considered.

Weight Gain During Pregnancy:

Weight gain during pregnancy is necessary and inevitable. After childbirth, a woman cannot find time to work out due to fatigue and lack of time to manage and take care of herself. In addition, when you feel uncomfortable in bowel movement or urination and loss of sensitivity in the groin area, this is an adverse effect of weight gain and you need to work out to lose weight by the advice of the physician.

The accumulation of fat in the abdominal and waist area after pregnancy is also an issue that has the impact on the mobility and activity of the body after childbirth. Baby carriers support the exercises for women besides carrying the baby and breastfeeding. Abdominal weight causes excessive pressure on the back and causes back pain. So, take regular exercise to prevent back pain and get relieved of stress and other woes after childbirth.

Flaws in Breastfeeding:

Breastfeeding is an important aspect for the well being of mother and child. The mother should select the correct posture to breastfeed the kid. The infants need feeding for every 30 minutes in the early months. Sometimes, the mother feels fatigued to feed the baby in the correct posture and gets affected by lower back pain.

Hence, wearing a baby carrier or a baby wrap that supports breastfeeding will remove the weight of the baby on your limbs and eases breastfeeding. Also, take care that you sit in a straight position to breastfeed your baby to avoid inconvenience for you and your newborn baby.

Misplacement of Muscles During Childbirth:

The muscles in the uterus will contract and expand during childbirth and even in c-section childbirth, the abdominal area and waist area will be prone to many muscular misplacement. In addition to the muscular pain, lower back pain is another adverse impact after childbirth. Abdominal exercises and breathing exercises are suggested by therapists to prevent lower back pain among mothers of newborn babies.

The muscles in the back and pelvic area get weakened after childbirth and this is another reason for lower back pain post childbirth. Using a proper baby wrap or baby carrier to lift the baby close to the chest prevents pressure on the hip area and reduces back pain.

Hormonal Imbalances:

During pregnancy, the body is prone to many hormonal imbalances and finally, this may lead to lower back pain among women. Hence, take the help of the physician to overcome this problem and have a good diet and exercise to prevent adverse effects, an integral part of baby blues.
