Parent24's Midwife, Marlise Van Onselen got a question asking about these kinds of pains during pregnancy:

My hips are killing me at night, I have tried the pillow between legs, under hips, stretching & a warm pack, nothing is helping. Any suggestions? I'm 32 weeks pregnant.


During pregnancy you body goes through lots of changes, this changes can create many aches and pains.  Hip pain and lower-back pain are two of the most common pains during pregnancy. Treatment will not necessarily take the pain away but will a allowing you to have a more comfortable pregnancy experience.
