Anyone know if SPD can make you high risk?

Hi. I'm currently struggling mobility wise.. Seeing GP tomorrow and know I'm likely to be SPD! I'm 29 weeks and to be honest finding it miraculous my body has held out this long... I have history of lower back/SI instability so I am not surprised this has come just thankful it's waited til now!

Very keen to have baby in MW led birthing centre (in big hospital) and ok doing ok on age and BMI with no other risks. Do you think a diagnosis of SPD will change that?

Really hoping not, will chat to Dr and MW over the next week...

No, it shouldn't change anything. I had crippling SPD and had a water birth. The water actually helped with my overall lack of mobility.

Same as above poster, horrid spd and normal births including a water birth for 10lb 13oz ds4, being in the water helped my pelvis.

I was on crutches by 5 months with dd2 and no-one even raised an eyebrow about my homebirth so should be fine.
