Experiencing joint pain during pregnancy? It may not be arthritis
Pregnancy brings along many changes to a new mother’s body, including the constant joint pains. While some mothers are prone to develop arthritis after delivery of their baby, not all joint pains may lead to the same condition.
These aches may be due to various factors of pregnancy like weight gain, change in posture and hormonal changes. Joint pain, stiff sensation, and aches in hips, elbows, knees, fingers and ankles are common in pregnant women. The initial aches are a sign that your body is preparing for childbirth.
