Keywords:postpartum exercise, uterine involution, post partum
The third highest service coverage for postpartum mothers is in Musi Rawas Regency, 93.5%. Citra Ananda Clinic is one of the clinics in Musi Rawas district which will serve 242 postpartum patients in 2022 and only 30% will take part in postpartum exercise. The needs of postpartum mothers include certain exercises that help the involution process. The aim of this research is to determine the effect of postpartum exercise on uterine involution in post partum mothers at the Citra Adinda Clinic, Musi Rawas Regency, South Sumatra.
The type and design of the research is quantitative with a pre-experimental type experimental analytical design with a pretest-post test one group design approach, namely in this paradigm there is a pretest before being given treatment so that the results of the treatment can be known more accurately, because it can be compared with the conditions before and after being given treatment.
The research results showed that the average (mean) uterine involution during the pre-test was 12.8, while uterine involution during the post-test was 7.8. The test results show that the p value = 0.017 < α = 0.05, which means that there is a significant effect of implementing postpartum exercise on uterine involution in post partum mothers.
Researchers suggest that the Citra Adinda Clinic provide IEC (communication, information and education) and implement postpartum exercise to accelerate uterine involution.
