Decalcification of bones and subluxation of joints is a part of pregnancy due to softening of ligaments caused by relaxin hormones.
It affects the sacroiliac joint and symphysis pubis (in a good way) which allows stretching when it’s time to birth your baby! Relaxins in conjunction with progesterone increases the water holding capacity of the ligaments surrounding these joints which in turn means increased joint mobility.
Movement can become irritating and produce back pain and inflammation which is also very common during pregnancy. Binding your belly throughout your third trimester for back relief, postural support can lessen the pressure from rapid growth and weight of your growing baby thus helping with stretching/stretch marks and much more.
Other changes in your bones can be linked to Vitamin and mineral deficiencies. This is why Sea Moss is HIGHLY recommended as a natural form of prenatal vitamins as opposed to synthetic over the counter prenatal multivitamins as it contains 92 of the 102 minerals that we need to maintain a healthy body before conception, during pregnancy and after. It also contains Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K.
