Yes, some people just have narrow hips, just like some people just have narrow minds...

Yes, there is such a thing as a malformed pelvis, usually caused by malnutrition (we're talking Ethiopia-type malnutrition) or genetic malformation, like cleft palate or something. Often, however, this "diagnosis" of narrow hips isn't based on clinical evidence, but other factors. But since this mother has never had a trial of labor, we'll never know how her pelvis can work with movement in labor and relaxin to flex and open.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. She sounds happy with this arrangement. And please don't pass along my comment to her...I'm trying to control the flow of bitterness out of my soul.
