Abstract: 

Background: Postpartum time is a transient time for the mother and her family, in which mothers need psycho-physical and social adaptation. This study aimed to define the association between postpartum physical activity 3-12 months after delivery and postpartum well-being.
Materials and Methods: This is a historical cohort study in which based on the primary information obtained from the physical activity questionnaire, 91 mothers were divided into two groups of postpartum light activity and moderate/heavy activity. Then, postpartum well-being in both the groups was measured by using the physical activity questionnaire.
The subjects were selected from seven health care centers through purposive convenient sampling, and the obtained data were analyzed by descriptive and analytical statistical tests.
Results: The results showed that 74.7% (n=68) of the subjects had light physical activity and 25.3% (n=23) had moderate and heavy physical activity. There was no significant difference in these two groups concerning physical activity. Mean score of mothers’ well-being in the group of light physical activity was less than that in moderate and heavy activity.
Conclusion: The findings showed that postpartum physical activity increases postpartum well-being and having a program in this regard can promote some of the health dimensions.
