Guglani Divya | Treesa Little


Abstract: Background: The postnatal period is the time during which women?s body adjusts physically to childbearing process and reverts back to its prepregnant state. Exercise after delivery plays a crucial role in improving physical well-being among postnatal women. Objective: To assess the effectiveness of postnatal exercises on postnatal well-being among postnatal women. Material and Methods: Quantitative approach with Quasi-experimental research design (time series design) was used in this study. A total of 60 postnatal women (30 in experimental group and 30 in control group) were selected by convenience sampling technique. Modified Urogenital Distress Inventory and Modified Quebec back pain disability scale were used to assess the postnatal well-being. Video-assisted Demonstration of postnatal exercise was given to experimental group and women performed exercise twice a day (morning and evening) for 3 weeks. The control group received only routine care. Post test was conducted for both groups on 7th, 14th and 21st day. Findings: The study findings showed that there was a statistically significant difference between the experimental and control group at 7th, 14th and 21st day after intervention with regard to Modified Quebec back pain disability scale [p-value = 0.0001, 0.0001 and 0.0001 respectively]. In relation to Modified Urogenital Distress Inventory, there was a statistically significant difference between the experimental and control group at 14th and 21st day after intervention [p-value = 0.0001 and 0.0001 respectively]. Conclusion: This study concludes that video-assisted demonstration of postnatal exercises is an effective method to improve the postnatal well-being among postnatal women.
