    I have mine on Thursday. I think they will look at your alignment and posture and things like that. Tell you how to get in and out of bed/car etc and depending how bad it is may offer you a support belt, tubi-grip or mobility aid.

    Good luck! :)

    Basically they will ask u alot of questions about when its worse and any activities that make ur SPD worse or more painful etc, they will then examine you and ask check the alignment of your pelvis while you are in certain positions.

    Its likely they will give you advice on your posture and how to sit properly etc and any activities that you should avoid, plus advice on how to manage the pain.

    Good luck :)

    It's good that you have got an appointment. Try what ever they offer, it might make all the difference.

    They will prob want to see you after the birth too. xxx
