Editor's Note — The abstract of this study appeared in the Bulletin of the American College of Nurse-Midwifery, Pall 1964, Vol. IX, Number 3, pp-64–65 under the title” An Experimental Study in the Effects of a Pattern of Supervised Postpartum Exercises on Mothers' Abdominal Musculature and Involution.” The findings are presented here because of the interest expressed by nurse-midwives in the study. Mrs. Cohen did the research for this paper as a master's candidate at Yale University. The postpartum excercises ulitized were: deep breathing, abdominal wall tightening, chin lift, pelvic rock, pelvic tilt, and modified alternate leg raising. The patients in the study groups were English speaking primigravidas and multiparas registered in the Yale-New Haven Prenatal Clinic who had normal pregnancies and gained no more than twenty-five to thirty pounds.
