As well as offering direct support and information, we also work to raise greater awareness of pelvic girdle pain (PGP) and influence policymakers.

Who we are

Link Copied

In line with our charitable objectives, we:

  • offer support and information to women experiencing pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP)
  • raise awareness that PGP can be safely and effectively treated with hands-on manual therapy.

We use many different approaches to raise awareness about PGP and its treatment.

One way is to develop submissions and participate in different policy processes. In this way we can try to influence policy makers to enable greater access to treatment for women with PGP.

Here are examples of our recent submissions:


Collaboration with other organisations

To support our policy and campaign work, we are also members of different national organisations:

Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA)

Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (ALLIANCE)


We are also proud members of the Pregnancy and Baby Charities Network (PBCN), a national collective of charities working to support women, new parents and babies in the UK. Our goals are:

  • to reduce the number of babies who die during pregnancy, birth or in the early weeks of life 
  • to reduce morbidity in newborn babies and improve care for these babies and their parents 
  • to improve care throughout the path to parenthood; before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy


COVID-19 Inquiry

We have also joined with other members of the PBCN in participating in the National COVID-19 Inquiry, to raise awareness about how women and birthing people with PGP were impacted during the pandemic.
