During pregnancy, the body undergoes many changes as hormones begin to prepare the body for bearing a child. These hormones are responsible for the relaxation of loosening of ligaments to ultimately allow the baby to go through the narrow pelvis during delivery. On top of hormonal and physical changes, the body has to go through carrying a continually growing baby, placenta, and water. Adjusting to these change forces the body to changes its movement pattern, walking standing, sitting, standing and sleeping postures.
