Link Copied

We offer support and information to women and birthing people who may be experiencing pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP).

We are a small national charity that is run by volunteers with personal experience of PGP. We are committed to helping other women with PGP, along with their families and carers, to find the path to recovery. 

PGP can be safely and effectively treated by a physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor. All treatment should be hands-on and tailored to you, and should include manual therapy.  

* Please note: The Pelvic Partnership is an inclusive organisation which recognises that those people experiencing PGP may encompass a range of gender identities. Wherever words denoting a specific gender are used in this website, they are intended to apply equally to all readers without regard to gender.
