Pregnancy is a time for excitement and anticipation, but for many women, it can also include physical symptoms that make it difficult to sleep, stand, and sit comfortably. Back pain in pregnant women often increases as the baby inside you grows and your body makes room, gains weight, shifts your center of gravity, and relaxes soft tissues that make your spine less stable. Stress during pregnancy can also manifest as muscle tension and stiffness, which contributes to back pain.
The good news? There are safe ways to deal with this pain and discomfort without harming yourself or your baby. One way to induce relaxation and take pressure off the back and spine is with a massage chair for pregnant women.
