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.
Our Stickmum campaign aims to encourage you to join us to raise awareness of pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP) which is affects one in five pregnant women. For more information on our Stickmum campaign, please click here. As part of this campaign, we have developed leaflets explaining PGP and the benefits of manual therapy.
To accompany the information on our website, we have developed information packs based on our own experiences as well as from up-to-date research and from expert opinion from professionals caring for women with PGP. Please note: these publications will be updated in 2019/2020.
