Abstract [en]

Background: After pregnancy and childbirth the female body goes through changes in both body and mind. Inadequate research has been done in the field of physical activity and exercise in postpartum women. Swedish counties has not formed a cohesive plan of antenatal care which creates variations throughout the country. Purpose: The aim for this study was to investigate how women are being informed about physical activity and exercise postpartum by Swedish healthcare. Method: To complete this study a survey was made and via a snowball sampling distributed throughout social media. Participants; 1023 women whom represented each county of Sweden. Inclusion criteria; to have given birth in Sweden the last 5 years and understand the Swedish language. Results: Women get limited oral and written information about physical activity and exercise. The information is mainly distributed by a midwife and women rarely get to meet a physiotherapist postpartum. Half of the women that did meet with a physiotherapist used the information but was in general not satisfied with its content. Conclusion: Postpartum activity and exercise is an individual process that should be exerted in consultation with a physiotherapist and the field of physiotherapy should be utilized to a greater extent in Swedish antenatal care.
