Rib pain during pregnancy

During your pregnancy and as the baby grows you may experience rib pain. This is probably due to your baby’s position. Your baby is constantly moving around in the womb and occasionally a little foot or arm could be poking you in the ribs. It maybe a little limb but the pain can be very uncomfortable! There are certain positions that we can advise you on to help offload the pressure on your ribs and that will help reposition your baby. One position that may help is the forward leaning position or ‘four point’ kneeling. We can also advise you on positions that will help you sleep and rest most comfortably.
