Dear Angela
It can be that you hurt the coccyx in the labour stage or even during the surgery. Please ask the gynae who did the delivery to have a look and either refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon or prescribe some anti-inflammatory drugs if you are not breastfeeding. A visit to a physiotherapist may also be a good option.
