Urinary incontinence (UI) is a widespread problem with great impact on quality of life and with high annual costs for patients and society. Pregnancy and delivery are the most prominent risk factors for the onset of pelvic floor injuries and -later-on- UI. Intensive supervised pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) during and after pregnancy is proven effective for the prevention of UI on the short term. However, only a minority of women do participate in preventive PFMT programs. Therefore, an analysis of barriers and facilitators from the perspective of postpartum women for participation in a preventive PFMT program was performed.
