|New research has shown that the complementary therapy of acupuncture may help women who suffer from pelvic girdle pain (PGP) during pregnancy.
Around one in five pregnant women (20 per cent) report experiencing PGP, which affects the anterior pelvis and can be made worse by standing, sitting or turning in bed.
In some seven per cent of women, the condition even continues after giving birth, but the new study published in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology may shed light on methods of pain relief.
