Bruise on buttocks, painful. Worried about tailbone injury

My daughter fell the other day on a metal slab type thing used to go over a drain in a sidewalk. She slipped and landed on on bottom. She cried and I carried her for a short bit to comfort her. But noticed later she had a bruise on her behind. Not in the center but a small bruise and over to the side a bit on her cheek bottom. Later we were at a birthday party and she slipped on a tarp and fell again. She was mostly embarrassed that time and didn t complain much. The first fall was on Friday. Second on Saturday and today is Thursday. Last night she was complaining about her bottom still hurting. Throbbing is what it sounded like she was describing. Worried she may have injured her tailbone. What should I do? Take her to see her pediatrician?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Good afternoon, tail bone injury will be rare in pediatric age group following a minor trauma.
I feel its a contusion which is hurting her, any how a orthopediacian will be a better person to contact in this prospect.
