The following publications have been written by women from the Pelvic Partnership, all of whom have personal experience of PGP. Since 2002, volunteers from the charity have been meeting and talking with and supporting women who have PGP. The information within the booklets is based on what has been learned from these experiences as well as from up-to-date research and from expert opinion from professionals caring for women with PGP.
