We hope to be able to help and support hundreds and thousands more of the sufferers that have not heard about us yet!

SPD is common but not normal during pregnancy and we need to:


STAMP out LACK of awareness

INCREASE the help that SPD sufferers NEED

Have people realise:

I may NOT LOOK disabled but my disability is NOT visual and is very much REAL!!


Please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help YOU!

You can visit our charity website for ENGLAND and read an FAQ, visit our blog and more!

We welcome SPD and PGP discussions on here and hope that you can find some friends!

Hiya My name's Jane. My son is 2 and half years old. When I was 34wks my pelvis drop. I couldn't move or do anything. I had a epidural, forceps and the things to pull my legs apart.
I though the pain will never end. I had plans to go back to work but the pain in my legs got worst. I can walk 30mins now but my legs will... start to hurt. My mum gives me her pain killers and it helps a great deal but if i'm in massive pain. Nothing will help
The weather makes it hurt as well. My doctor says it is because i'm fat " 14st" I'm big though but i don't think it is the cuz some one help!

I completely agree Sarah, my Dr ignored my SPD diagnosis and in hindsight if i had have had the help i needed then woudl i be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life! I started this charity for women like us, as i too would never want any SPd sufferer to go through what i did, i lost my business, my house, had to move at 35wks pregnant, had a really hard time and its not getting any easier, perhaps if i achieve SPD as being more recognised in the health professional way then maybe others will have a much easier route and access to help!

My blog is and its not associated with the charity i started but its my personal story and i recommend others to share theirs, it doesnt matter if and spd sufferer had a worse time or an easier time than me, SPD at any severity is a disabling condition as it affects mobility and therefore affects self esteem. i just want to be here to help.

And Sarah Fox, id like to thank you for taking the time out to give this community a chance and i will really appreciate you being here for others when they find out about it.

If your interested in doing anything to help just message me, if not i dont mind, your welcome here anytime you need :)

Much love

All of my Disabilities are invisible, and the SPD was a huge issue for me, if it had been recognised during my first pregnancy would I have the unstable pelvis and problems related to it that I have now?? I know I can't change my past, but I want to help people so that Don't end up where I am.
