We campaign to raise greater awareness of pelvic girdle pain (PGP) and promote best practice in its treatment.

Who we are

Link Copied

We offer support and information to women and birthing people experiencing pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP). This includes supporting them to see a physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor for hands-on individualised treatment, including manual therapy.

We also work to raise awareness of PGP in the community and campaign to ensure all women can access the treatment they need, as soon as they need it.

Join our Stickmum campaign #pgpistreatable

PGP affects up to half of all women and birthing people during and after pregnancy.

PGP may be common but pain during pregnancy is never normal.

Please join us to form a chain of women across the UK, united in spreading the word about PGP and its treatment. With your help we can reach as many healthcare professionals as possible and spread the word that #pgpistreatable.

You can:

  • share our message and videos on social media tagging @thepelvicpartnership #pgpistreatable #getamummoving
  • join with us to buy and distribute our Stickmum leaflets in your community
  • follow the campaign online with #pgpistreatable #getamummoving.

Every woman with PGP has the right to see a manual therapist and be treated as soon as they have symptoms. Please help us to spread the word that #pgpistreatable and help to #getamummoving.

Manual therapy on the NHS

We encourage women with PGP to see their GP or midwife and ask for a referral for NHS physiotherapy services. If this is not possible, we can signpost them to a private physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor, e.g. via our website.

More and more women have reported to us that they are unable to access hands-on manual therapy on the NHS. In a recent survey, 90% of respondents hadn’t had manual therapy on the NHS, mainly because they weren’t offered it (2021 Pelvic Partnership survey).

Some women chose to pay for treatment but this is too expensive for many other women. In the same survey, 80% of respondents who hadn’t had private treatment said they couldn’t afford it (2021 Pelvic Partnership survey).
