I strongly recommend Bowen therapy. It's the only thing recommended by the Pelvic Instability Network.

Your SPD is likely to go after birth - though I had a severe case and mine did not. Physio is useful after birth. Before they'll just give you a support band and crutches.

I tried everything, including osteotherspy, which was useless.

Bowen gave me my life back.

I used a chiropractor trained in pregnancy.

4th pregnancy, 2nd with severe pgp.
I have a really good NHS physio who specialises in women's health. She has provided exercises, physio (also taught to my husband) and acupuncture. I also saw a chiropractor last pregnancy and although it felt good at the time of treatment, it was expensive and no long lasting effects.
