This article presents a case report concerning labor-related sacral and pubic fractures. The pelvic joints undergo changes during pregnancy and delivery that are due to mechanical stresses and hormonal influences. Low-back pain is also a common symptom during pregnancy and post partum because of mechanical lesions of the pelvic soft-tissues.
