It's really encouraging to see I'm not alone! I fractured my tailbone during a relatively short 'normal' birth. We all heard the CRACK and once I was moved I was in severe pain, which the doctors and nurses brushed off and told me to get up and around - it was impossible. I needed assistance to get up as I was in so much pain.
A word of encouragement for woman with similar experience and wanting more children - I had two more children and experienced minor pain after the second and almost none after the third!!
This happened ten years ago and I still suffer if I have to sit for long periods or on hard surfaces - but certainly not to the same degree as when it first happened.
Thank you for sharing your experiences
