Not a woman, but married to one
Wife went through something very similar, and asked the Dr about it. She's extremely small in stature to begin with, but we had to go back to square one on fitting after the first child. According to the Dr the birth of a child totally reworks a womans pelvis configuration as a matter of course. So much so he explained that Dr's can tell simply via x-ray whether a woman has ever gone through childbirth due to the physical changes.
And my wife had ours via C-Section to boot.
Edit.. Found this on the web..

While abdomenoplasty does not seem to affect pelvic anatomy, pregnancy does. At the time of pregnancy, your body releases an enzyme that loosens the attachments between the two sides of the pelvic bones. This enzyme allows the pelvis to widen for birth. The only problem is that the bones may not return to their position after birth. Thus, pelvic anatomy is changed.
