Having a baby changes a woman’s life. Almost every part of a woman’s body gets bigger after giving birth—bigger hips, bigger thighs, a bigger waistline.
Relaxin and Its Role During Pregnancy and Delviery During pregnancy, the hormone Relaxin is present in 10 times its normal concentration in the female body.
During delivery, the body releases the hormone Relaxin which allows the pelvic ligaments, joints and connective tissue to expand so that the baby can pass through the birth canal.
After delivery, Relaxin levels gradually dissipate for the next six to eight weeks and loosened pelvic joints and ligaments begin to tighten and stabilize.
