PGP National Guidelines

National guidelines have been developed by teams of physiotherapists, midwives, doctors and women’s representatives in the UK and Ireland. Based on research evidence, these outline the treatment recommended by these groups. You may find these guidelines useful when discussing your treatment options with the healthcare professionals caring for you.
