Yes will have back ache but it’s not due to epidural. It’s a myth. It’s because you have been carrying weight for the past 9 months and suddenly that weight is gone so it takes time for the spine to adjust back to pre pregnancy time.

Common but it should get better. Make sure your posture is correct whenever u do daily chores like washing clothes or when carrying baby. Especially when baby gets heavier, tendency to arch back when carrying is no-no.


Yes, I had a back pain as well. However, I felt it was due to the various changes my body gone through is a relatively short time.

Yes, I do have back ache but not sure if it’s from epidural or improper posture when feeding baby.

Yes, after giving birth to my 2nd baby. Lower back to be specific. And only when bending too long.

Yes.. Try to rest more and avoid carrying heavy load.. If need to practice proper posture

Hey, Yes it is common post pregnancy. But if pain persists then please consult doctor
