    Subject:  [October2017Babies] Sacrum Pain!
    Comment:  I developed very bad lower back and hip pain around 30 weeks. Stretching and exercises weren't helping. My OB, Dr Ira Jaffe through Rosh MFM in Manhattan, gave me a soft tissue adjustment (he's a Doctor of Osteopathy). Three days later, the pain was just about completely gone and I was walking pain-free again. He found that my sacrum had become crooked and my lower spine was also becoming misaligned since I had been limping so much. I did have to pay for it out of pocket, but it was worth it to have such an improvement.He did suggest to keep my body in alignment at all times (walking, sitting, standing) and not put more weight on one side than the other. Also, to focus on my posture. I don't know that this would help relieve your pain but perhaps it could keep it from worsening.

    Comment:  Dr. Jaffe took me on as a patient very late in my pregnancy when I had to switch from a midwife to an OB due to a complication that made it necessary for me to have a planned c-section. Although I did not have much time to establish a relationship with him I really trusted him--he took his time answering every question with a clear explanation and a bit of humor. He really helped ease the stress of having a birth very different than the one I had planned. The only negative aspect of my experience with him was the long wait time at his office.Based on June 2016 birthing experience
