Doc Talk: Abdominal pain during pregnancy

Anyone who has ever been pregnant knows that abdominal pain can really freak a mama out. But, as you may also know, some pain is very normal during pregnancy while other types of pain can be warning signs that you need medical attention. So how’s a pregnant mama supposed to know which pain is normal and expected and which pain isn’t?

We asked Dr. Hugh Donnell of Rogers Medical Center to tell us what pregnant women need to know about abdominal pain during pregnancy. He describes what “round ligament pain” is and how it may differ from other pregnancy issues.  Dr. Donnell has been taking care of pregnant patients for many years and understands how much stress and worry abdominal pain can cause.
