Are you finding the most special 9 months of your life are being spoiled by pain in the groin area, painful hips, backache, pain on moving and pain at night? Chances are you have developed the dreaded Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or Pelvic Girdle Pain and the first thing that you will realize is, it's not going away on its own. Fact is, it's probably getting worse over time.

If you can get a GP to take you seriously, you'll soon discover there are lots of things you can do to manage the symptoms, but very little by way of treatment. Symptom management is great for covering things up, but not much use for making it better. This is pretty much the state of play for the condition of SPD/PGP as things stand at the moment.

Pain is usually felt low down in the pelvis, or in the hips, groin and lower abdomen, and can radiate down the inner thighs. It's not unusual for the pain to last for hours at a time, even all night, and daytime pain is often increased by walking or by weight-bearing activities such as climbing stairs.

Treatment can consist of painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs, crutches, wheelchairs, physio, a support belt, or a referral to a pain clinic. For some women with very severe cases of SPD, they may not be able to walk at all. Those with a supportive family may get by just fine, but for the most part, there is very little support or services available for women with this condition. For many women nothing works and they remain in considerable pain. Often they are told they must put up with it until after the birth as there is nothing else to try and it is just one of the aches and pains of pregnancy that is little understood.

Don't let someone else tell you there's nothing you can do. Once that becomes part of your belief system, then you give up hope of ever finding help. When someone tells you, there's no treatment for this, something you'll hear far too frequently, it usually comes from someone you trust, your doctor, your midwife, your nurse. But what you are hearing is only THEIR EXPERIENCE and THEIR BELIEF, it doesn't have to be yours too!

Pelvic Girdle Pain is the new name for Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, but it's still just as painful, the symptoms are all the same, and flareups can still take a devil of a long time to subside. One sure way to ruin a perfectly good pregnancy. I hope not yours!

Are you suffering with the symptoms of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or Pelvic Girdle Pain?
Pregnant woman holding tummy This new treatment is specifically designed for women suffering back pain and symptoms of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or Pelvic Girdle Pain during their pregnancy. It is not something you will find anywhere else, but it is something you can learn yourself, or your partner can learn, and use to help you counteract this very painful condition.

Dads, you have it in your power to help the mother of your children. The SPD treatment plan is something YOU learn. It's YOU that takes the responsibility of helping your suffering wife/partner. Are you up to it? Are you man enough to take up this challenge and show all the people you've been begging for help, that you've taken the bull by the horns and gone and done it yourself? I hope so, because you are the new generation of men who are more intune with their partners pregnancy, from start to finish. It's not about lighting a cigar when it's all over anymore.

Why not book your appointment now? Men, bring your pregnant partner and let me show you how to help her, just when she needs it most, when the pain is at it's highest. Have a look through this site and see if what I'm saying makes sense to you. Discuss it between you and make the decision to do something about it.

Men have stood by and watched their women go through the pain of childbirth for millennia. Guys you don't have to do that anymore, and statistics show you really do want to be part of creating this new life and sharing the upbringing in the fullest sense. But who can stand by and watch their wives/partners in so much pain they can't even walk sometimes? Not many that I know.

Pregnancy should be a time of great joy and happiness for you both. The reality of SPD or PGP can be very different. Often a new dad will do much in these circumstances to lighten the load and help out around the house, yet still feel the frustration of seeing his partner in pain. Well, new dad, now's your chance to do something really positive and make her happy!
