Aches and Pains in the Pelvis Get a Name

This model can fully articulate all her joints and get her pelvis attached and unattached to demonstrate the forces of pregnancy and labor. She's feeling no pain as we work our labor drills. But not so with most of the pregnant women we take care of. They present in labor having toughed out many a day of pain. This pain now has a name: PGP, Pelvic girdle pain. "Pelvic girdle pain affects 20-45% of all pregnant women," write Elisabeth K. Bjelland, MSc, from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo, and colleagues. But to find out if you are suffering from this, contact your gyno.
