The stress of pregnancy frequently causes lower back pain, headaches, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms. When your body goes through the various stages and trials of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to extreme amounts of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to bear the growing weight of another person over a short time frame of just nine months. The center of gravity shifts forward and substantial weight gain adds pressure to the spine of the expecting mother.
