I have heard of this before...the mother had broken her sacrum during the pushing phase. I would see your midwife or doctor just to make sure. I imagine that it must be pretty painful. Is there anyway you could hire a postpartum doula to help with the transition...<br><br>
Good luck mama

I had it after my son was born (c-section) and it got really bad when I was pregnant with my daughter. A few visits to a really good chiropractor and it went away completely. It came back after DD was born (HBAC), but again the chiro visits took care of it. In my case, it was from the pressure of a posterior baby on my sacrum, both times.

I have had this with my last two births. What really helped me was homeopathy, specifically Arnica & Hypericum homeopathic remedies...I took in 30c potency.

I know you can bruise your tailbone during labor, and bone bruises take a long time to heal. However, the pain should be constant, not getting worse. You might want to see a doc to make sure you didn't crack or break your tailbone during labor. If the x-rays are clear, I'd reccomend you see a chiropractor. The tailbone has to swing back in after baby's birth (it swings out during third trimester to make space for delivery), and it sounds like something with that process is not going well for you. Have you tried PP binding? I've heard that can help a bit as well.

My good friend has broken her tailbone with her DS1 and DS2. I would definitely get it checked for that. She says the pain is worse than the actual childbirth.
