Could you get to Kent? Quentin Shaw is the leading osteopath at treating SPD in the country. I'm on Fb groups and forums where people travel from Ireland because he's that good.

If you can't travel to see him, The Pelvic Partnership will more than likely be able to recommend someone nearer to you.

Tips are

Rest as much as possible.
Keep your knees together when you get in and out of the car.
Get a Serola belt
A Snoozle is good. It's a satin slip sheet you put on the bed so it makes it easier to turn over. (I would put links up for these but everytime I try, I lose my post confused)
A long body pillow in the bed that you can have to put under your knees. It's useful later on because it'll go under your knees too.
Don't lift or carry anything heavy.
Don't push a buggy or supermarket trolley.
Ice the joint. Ice is better than heat.

Six Physio have excellent women's health specialists. Pm me for recommendation of the specific one I've been seeing this time.

Last pregnancy I got some relief from acupuncture and cranial osteopath - both around Shoreditch area. Again, pm me for details.
