Relaxin functions to loosen ligaments which in turn allows the pelvis to spread every so slightly to allow passage of the newborn. I do not know how long the hormone is produced after birth or the half-life of the hormone in the body.

There never has been a report to my knowledge that implicates relaxin with disc herniation.
