Pregnancy & Postpartum Special Interest Group (PPSIG)

The PPSIG provides a forum to connect PTs, PTAs and SPTs from a variety of clinical disciplines that promotes networking and cross-leveling of information about musculoskeletal evaluation, treatment, and wellness during and after pregnancy. Year-round, the PPSIG hosts virtual events such as workshops, webinar panels or social meet and greets to connect you to fellow professionals and industry experts interested in or who specialize in pregnancy/postpartum topics.

Special Interest Group (SIG) is a sub-community within the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge or learning where members can connect, collaborate and help develop solutions within their particular topic area or produce new educational resources and networking opportunities. The Academy currently has 3 established SIGs. Each SIG consists of directors-at-large who each meet virtually year-round to facilitate discussions, problem-solve and develop new resources to members.
