Oraciones de ejemplo
  • In addition, the increase in production of the hormone relaxin (which the body uses to prepare for labor) causes a loosening of the connective tissue around those joints and creates instability.
  • In the third trimester your body releases a hormone called relaxin, which loosens the joints to allow for easier passage of the baby.
  • The hormone relaxin is released in your system in increased levels during your pregnancy so be more careful to not overload the body with impact (jumping/running) and stretch much more gently.
