Abstract: Abstract. Background: Postnatal period brings about series of mental and physiological changes in women during the first six months. The postnatal exercises, diet and proper care are needed on regular basis to deal with postnatal problems like back pain, weight gain, fatigue, depression, urinary incontinence, diastasis recti. Objective: This study was carried out with the objective of exploring the level of postnatal exercise awareness, factors influencing the awareness and the barriers that the mothers face in attendending to postnatal exercises programme. Research Methodology: A cross sectional study that was conducted in the paediatrics OPD of CMC And Hospital, Ludhiana on recently delievered mothers who visited the hospital for the vaccination of their babies. The convenient sampling method was used to select the sample size of 50. The participants were selected on the basis of inclusion criteria that includes mothers who delievered recently ( within 6 weeks of duration from the time of delivery ) and who were willing to participate in the study and the individuals who were unco-operative were excluded. The self structured questionnaire comprising of 20 questions was distributed among the participants after obtaining the consent from them. Results: 18% of women were aware of postnatal exercises. Only 4% had attended to postnatal exercise programme after delivery. 82% did not attend as they were not aware of postnatal exercises. There was significant relationship between unawareness of postnatal exercise and attending to postnatal exercises programme. Conclusion: The key finding of the study was that the most women lacked awareness about postnatal exercises.The physiotherapists should create awareness among mothers, caregivers, family members and the other health care professionals about importance of the postnatal exercises during postnatal period.
