A previous study on trimester-III-pregnant women in Private Midwifery Service in Palembang found that four of five pregnant women experienced pains in back and hip. These pains were relieved if the muscles of back and waist were stretched. This study aimed at knowing the effect of pelvic rocking on the relief of back pain in pregnant women.
