Sammanfattning: Abstract Background Regular physical activity is an important part of a woman’s health. There are no Swedish guidelines regarding physical activity during the postpartum period which leads to limited knowledge in healthcare. This lack of knowledge shows a need to examine postpartum women´s personal experience of information regarding physical activity and exercise after childbirth. Objectives To investigate postpartum women’s experience of information regarding physical activity and exercise after childbirth. Method A quality descriptive study design was used. Six semi-structured interviews with postpartum women were conducted and analysed with a quality content analysis. Results The analysis revealed six categories and nine subcategories regarding the informants’ experiences. The informants experienced insufficient information regarding physical activity and exercise after childbirth. All the informants described the information as general and desired to obtain personalized advice regarding physical activity and exercise. Conclusion Women experience lack of information after childbirth. There is no guidance on how physical activity and exercise should be performed. Individualized information regarding physical activity and exercise could contribute to better health for the postpartum woman.
