Audrey Roloff from LPBW Reveals She Has SPD after Giving Birth to Baby Bode as She Takes Stroll with Her Kids
Audrey Roloff revealed that she's unable to walk very far as she talks about her symphysis pubis dysfunction in a new post. It especially burns her because of her active past.
Yet, in her caption, Audrey shared that she was suffering from a postpartum condition following the delivery of her son Bode four weeks ago. The post is found below.
Audrey and Ember go out for a stroll
In the photograph, Audrey looks Spring-ready wearing a large coat with a pair of leggings, brown boots, and a matching beanie on her head. She smiled radiantly for the camera.
She held onto a baby stroller where two-year-old Ember sat well-bundled up wearing a cream beanie hat and pink boots. Both of the tot's hands were raised as she also smiled.

One of my favorite moments ever😭Ember meeting Bode for the first time😍She is just the sweetest big sister already. We took some videos that I’m sure we’ll share in our stories soon. Jer and I can’t stop smiling and laughing at the things she says about him and to him. She’s so eager to take care of him and give him lots of lovies💗Postpartum has been hard on my body, but cuddling with these precious little loves makes my heart so full. What an honor it is to be their mama.
Audrey reveals her pelvis condition
The former "Little People, Big World" star wrote in her caption that all she can do these days is walk around her farm. "Thank you symphysis pubis disfunction [sic]," she added in brackets.
The tv-personality went on to note that the pelvic bone infliction was hindering her from running. Plus, she's hoping to bring Ember out on the slopes either Winter or Spring.
What is Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction?
According to HealthLine, Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction typically happens around pregnancy and affects the front and back of the pelvis. It sometimes causes severe pain along with discomfort.
The symptoms that make up the condition include clicking or grinding sounds in the pelvis, difficulty walking or using the stairs, and incontinence issues. It may also be painful to turn over in bed.

A walk around the farm is about all I can do these days😅 (thank you symphysis pubis disfunction🙈) I’m really hoping my pelvic bones can heal back soon because I’m so eager to get Ember girl on skis this winter/spring⛷and I can’t wait to start running again!🏃🏽♀️Jer is training for a half, and it’s making me so jealous lately😫
Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction occurs in an estimated one in five pregnant women to various degrees. As the muscles relax for pregnancy, the joints slacken and may become unbalanced, leading to discomfort.
Tori Roloff thought she had it, too
Last July, fellow "Little People, Big World" star Tori Roloff was convinced she had the same condition before giving birth to her daughter Lilah. In her Instagram stories, she said it was an all-day ailment.
Tori, who is wife to Zach Roloff, added that she was not a fan of taking medication. After giving birth, she later revealed she had a harder delivery than her first son, Jackson.
Audrey's tough delivery day with Bode
Meanwhile, Audrey's recent delivery of son Bode wasn't all rainbows and butterflies either. Last week, the red-haired beauty detailed the tough day she had on January 8.
Audrey didn't expect Bode to come on his due date, so she waited last minute to time her contractions and then go to the hospital. She was stuck in traffic for 25 minutes while in labor.

The morning of January 8th I went in for my 40 week appointment🤰🏼 and I was 3cm dialated but not having contractions or any signs of labor yet... other than Bode feeling like he was going to fall out of me he was so low🤪 I just assumed he would come late because Ember was 12 days late🤷🏼♀️ But since it was my due date there was a little bit of extra hopefulness that just maybe... 🙏🏻 When I got home from my apt. I snapped a pic of my 40 week belly and posted it saying, “Happy due date baby boy, you can come out now.” Little did I know... I was just a few hours away from holding our son for the first time👶🏼 I had lots of Braxton Hicks all throughout my third trimester so I wasn’t really paying much attention to how consistent they were this time around. I just figured I’d know for sure this time around when it was the real deal. But with Bode it wasn’t so obvious🤔 Around 4:00pm I was having lots of consistent Braxton Hicks contractions, but they were a little more uncomfortable than normal. By 4:30 I thought what the heck... I guess I’ll start timing these just to see🤷🏼♀️They were about 4 minutes apart. “Just in case” I went up stairs and put the last minute things in my hospital bag and change my clothes. While upstairs the contractions turned into the kind where you have to stop and focus on breathing. At 5 pm I called my mom and said she better come over to be with Ember “just in case.” I still wasn’t convinced😂 My mom showed up at 5:30 and at this point my contractions where about 3-4 min apart and painful enough for me to tell Jer, “I think Bode might be born on his due date.” My labor with Ember was pretty fast, so we knew we wanted to air on the side of leaving sooner than later. We ended up leaving right after my mom arrived. Straight into rush hour traffic🙄 25 minutes of laboring in the truck while in stop and go traffic🤦🏼♀️ Jer may have run a few red lights🤫 We checked into labor and delivery at the hospital at 6:30 and I was 8 cm dialated🤯 ... Bode was born at 7:36 sooooo from the time we got there, things happened fast! Click the link in my bio for the rest of the story! #bodejames #btspodcast
Ultimately, Bode was delivered safely and came out at a healthy 9.2 lbs measuring 21 inches. We hope his mom recovers soon so she can take some long walks with both her kids.
