The WA Pelvic Mesh Support Group was created in 2017 as a sister group to Australian Pelvic Mesh Support Group and Mesh Awareness Australia.

The majority of the group are injured by urogynecological mesh and all live in Western Australia.

WAPMSG was originally created on Facebook to find and support mesh injured women in Western Australia with severe complications as a result of undergoing pelvic mesh surgery.
WAPMSG focuses on supporting each other through emotional and painful experiences. We provide education, research and current information related to pelvic mesh. Our members understand the isolation, abandonment and complications caused by mesh injury and we are passionate about helping them find local resources to help them through their life altering condition and promote awareness to prevent this from happening to others.
We hope that by alerting the public to the sometimes horrific, physical and chemical interactions that surgical mesh causes, we can stop others from being implanted and reach the thousands that are alone and suffering in silence.

Please browse through the site and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
