Just taken my first baby yoga class. Wow what fun! I am after some advice from all you more experienced teachers out there.

A Mum has asked me for advice on how she can deal with her aching joints. Her little daughter is 3 months old, and since her birth Mum has been suffering from joint pains, particularly in her knees and wrists. Her health visitor has put the pain down to loose ligaments after the birth. Any help/advice greatfully received.

Hi Phil

My sister had the same problem when her son was about 6 months. Her pains started in her wrists and spread to other joints to the point where she could not hold her son and had to take strong analgesia. She was seen by a specialist and all the investigations came back negative. No cause was found but she was breastfeeding and I wondered if this effected her joints as the hormones can 'soften' the joints . She had returned to her Yoga sessions around the same time so I wondered if she may have over extended her joints. I have come accross other breastfeeding women who have had joint pains. Is this mum breastfeeding?

Hi Jewant

Many thanks for your reply. Yes mum is breastfeeding. Sounds like her health visitor was thinking along the same line with the loose ligament theory.
