I was 20 weeks pregnant when I started to experience what I know now to be PGP. However back then I did not know what it was called. It was my first pregnancy, and I didn't know if this level of discomfort was part and parcel with being pregnant.
I decided to go to the doctor. I described my symptoms as vividly as possible; ‘its like I have been kicked in the vagina by a rugby player’, I told the doc. The doctor labelled my condition SPD, the catch all term for pelvic pain in pregnancy, and explained to me that there wasn't much I could do about it. A few days later, while getting out of the car, I wrenched my pelvis somehow. The pain was so bad, I was off my feet for three days.
That is when my husband turned to Google, and luckily found Deborah. I got instant relief after the first Physiotherapy session. After that it was a matter of regular maintenance sessions with her, and following her guidance.
I have no doubt that I would of been on crutches or bed bound had I not followed Deborah’s advice. I reduced walking, but still swam and did yoga. I did her pregnancy physiolates class, which I would strongly recommend to anyone with pelvic, back or posture issues.
Deborah is not a miracle worker, as she will tell you herself; you need to come to her early during your pregnancy, follow her instructions and listen to the limits of your own pregnant body. I will definitely be recommending her and her practice.A. Foley, Booterstown
