During vaginal delivery, all structures – including the coccyx – remain stretched following the passage of your baby. This is not serious. But pain, sometimes persistent, can occur. It may be necessary
to adapt your sitting position (e.g. by sitting on a swimming ring) or to undergo physiotherapy as prescribed by your doctor.
Painkillers (paracetamol or anti-inflammatory drugs), compatible with breastfeeding, can lessen pain.
