Among the children whose mothers were diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy, 69 percent were exposed to chemotherapy before birth, about 3 percent to radiation therapy and 5.4 percent to both chemotherapy and radiation.

Achy hips, poor circulation in the legs, back pain when walking or even rolling over in bed. All of these aches and pains are common symptoms of pregnancy.

Scientists have figured out that there is a pregnancy hormone called Relaxin that your body releases which loosens the joints and muscles. It doesn’t do this for no reason. It is nature’s way of preparing your body for birth.

Obstetrician and other doctors recommend support undergarments with compression technology.

Australia-based SRC Recovery makes pregnancy compression shorts and leggings just for this problem.

Both are made with breathable fabric that help keep moisture away from the skin. They are uniquely designed for pregnant women and have a fabric panel to support under the bump, the pelvic floor, the lower back and legs.
