Dr. Nensi Vaibhav Gandhi | Dr. Jagdish T. Gohil
Abstract: Introduction: The postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after childbirth as the mother's body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postnatal period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies; most maternal and newborn deaths occur during this period. Materials and Methods: Study design was Phase: Interventional study, Subjects: More than 90 postpartum females from Vadodara. Inclusion Criteria was Women aged between 18 and 35 years, Primi and multi-parous women, Subjects included with vaginal delivery. Results: Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) in terms of FEV1, FVC AND FEV1/FVC and Maternal Quality of Life (M-QOL), age, were presented as mean ?SD. SNC and MNC were compared across different group by performing one way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Categorical variable was expressed in percentage Statistics. P< 0.001 was considered as level of statistical highly significance. Discussion: Postnatal exercise plays a significant role in Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) and Maternal Quality of Life (MQOL) in postpartum mothers. So, we have tried to analyze the effect of Postnatal exercise on Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) by Winspiro Software and Maternal Quality of Life (MQOL) assessed by the maternal postpartum Questionnaire (MPQ) in postpartum mothers. Conclusion: We found that there is a significant effect of post-natal increase in FEV1, FVC and FEV1/FVC in immediate postpartum mothers. We found that there is a significant effect of post-natal increase on QOL in immediate postpartum mothers.
