Abstract [en]

Regular physical activity is a recognised factor in the promotion of lifelong health. Exercise during pregnancy has been more accepted lately, and research shows that exercise during pregnancy is safe and beneficial, as opposed to the general view a few years ago when exercise during pregnancy was considered dangerous for both mother and fetus. It is likely that exercise plays a crucial role for women's health in postpartum as at any other time during her life. However, exercise after pregnancy is not a well­studied field and there are uncertainties about how exercise postpartum should be performed. This fact contributes to that an estimated 75% of women in postpartum reports that they want more information about lifestyle related factors such as diet, physical activity and exercise. The aim of the present study was to investigate how well exercise­advise given to women postpartum match with current research. To investigate this, a survey was made. Seven midwifes responded to how they advise and supervise women when it comes to exercise postpartum. The results shows that a majority of midwifes are unsure of how exercise should be performed, and the advise given does not always match with current research. The present study indicates that more research and education concerning exercise postpartum is needed.
