Postnatal physio therapy rehabilitation plays an important role in promoting well-being and recovery of mothers after childbirth. Studies have shown that primipara mother (who give birth once / 1st child birth) were more likely to have perineal pain and mulitpara mother (who give birth >1) were more likely to have urinary incontinence problems.

Many physical changes, such as strain on the muscles during pregnancy and delivery, changes in body posture, and changes in muscle tone, can occur during the postpartum period in mothers. Theses changes can result in a variety of musculoskeletal problems that can affect their overall well-being.
