Abstract: The first 24 hours of death is a major cause of bleeding caused by an atonic uterus (uterine contraction is not good after the baby is born). One care to maximize uterine contraction during the puerperium is by implementing parturition gymnastics in order to accelerate the process of uterine involution. The purpose of this study was to analyze the fundal height difference on 12 hours and 6 days postpartum by comparing those who did parturition gymnastics and those who did not do gymnastics parturition. This was experimental study with Post Control Only Control Group Design. Parturition gymnastics was given to intervention group but the control group was not treated with parturition gymnastics, then fundal height was measured on the 12 hour postpartum and 6 day. Data were analyzed by using chi-square and t tests. From the research results, there was a difference fundal height on 12 hours and 6 days postpartum who did gymnastics parturition compared to those who did not do gymnastics parturition P = 0.074 and 0.013. There was a relationship between gymnastics parturition with fundal height postpartum r = 0.0369. It can be concluded that there was a difference of fundal height on 12 hours and 6 days postpartum who did gymnastics parturition compared to those who did not do gymnastics parturition. There was a correlation between fundal height and gymnastics parturition.
