Maria Rubia, 26 never imagined that her childbirth with her first baby could end up in a wheelchair. The x-ray revealed that her pubic bone had split apart which happened at the final push during delivery.

Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) is a weird pregnancy conditions related to your pelvis.
There is a tiny gap between the 2 halves that comes together at the front of the pelvis. This gap naturally increases just a smidgen to create more room for your baby to grow and pass through when born. But for some women’s pubic bones separated too far or unevenly resulting to pain and inability to function as it is suppose to be during certain activities.
The dysfunction is also related to the hormone relaxin, produced by the body during pregnancy with a mission to soften the ligaments in the pelvis so the joints can move apart to let the baby move down the passage. Too high or too much produced too soon during pregnancy, before 14 weeks leads to SPD as the body doesn’t adapt to the stretchier, looser ligaments.

2. You had pelvic girdle pain in previous pregnant
3. You had a previous injury to your pelvis
4. You have high BMI and overweight before or during pregnant
5. You started period before age 11, related with growth and puberty
6. You had a large baby or twins, they tend to increase pressure right on your pubic bone
7. Poor pasture, adding tension and pressure to the pelvis

Expert says:

You can suffer from this in a mild form, which can be treated by
