    By: Anne M Weber, MD, MS

    There is no doubt that the structures of the pelvis go through dramatic changes during pregnancy and at the time of vaginal childbirth. For vaginal childbirth to occur, the baby must be able to fit past the pelvic muscles and connective tissue. There is usually some amount of stretching or tearing that allows this to happen.
