Pregnancy Related Pain

Around 1 in 5 women experience pain in their back, pelvis, or hips, during pregnancy. The term Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) covers a wide range of symptoms with some women having very mild discomfort and some women having severe pain and finding everyday tasks difficult. Having PGP does not mean that there is a serious problem with your health, the safety of your pregnancy, or your ability to have a normal delivery.
Many women find that exercises and lifestyle changes improve their pain. Most women find that PGP resolves after delivery.
