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.
Please note: our co-ordinator will mail the publications via 2nd class post within 72 hours (Mon - Fri) once payment is received. For larger orders or international orders please contact our co-ordinator Lucy Ryan at email@example.com.
This publication has been produced for women with Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) and their families and carers. It looks at the symptoms and causes of PGP and at how to treat and manage it. It also covers ideas about how to approach pregnancy and birth with PGP together with suggestions of actions to take if PGP persists after birth. There are suggestions about who you could approach for support and help, equipment which might be useful and ideas of ways forward if you have had longer-term problems with pelvic pain. It is aimed particularly for women with PGP, their families and their carers but is also relevant for healthcare professionals.
This publication is for the family and friends of women who have Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) and aims to explain what this is, and how it can be successfully treated and managed.
