Introduction: Abnormal uterine involution has a risk of bleeding in postpartum mothers and can cause emergencies. Thus, it is necessary to make efforts that can accelerate the process of uterine involution in pregnant women. This study aimed to determine the relationship between early mobilization, early breastfeeding initiation, and postpartum exercise on uterine involution in postpartum mothers in the UPTD Puskesmas Pagelaran Cianjur area.

Methods: This research method used a quantitative approach with correlation analysis to see the relationship between the independent and dependent variables (chi-square). The sample used was 52 postpartum mothers.

Results: The results of this study were that most of the respondents did early mobilization, namely 40 people (76,9%); more than half of the respondents, namely 28 people (53,8%) did early breastfeeding initiation, half of the respondents, namely 26 people (50%) did postpartum exercises, most of the respondents, namely 41 people (78,8%) experienced a normal process of uterine involution.

Discussion: This study concluded that there was a relationship between early mobilization and uterine involution (p-value 0,001 OR = 12,6); there was a relationship between early breastfeeding initiation and uterine involution (p-value 0,02; OR = 7,8) and there was a relationship between postpartum exercise with uterine involution (p-value = 0,042; OR = 6,535). Thus, it is hoped that postpartum mothers can carry out early mobilization, early breastfeeding initiation (IMD), and postpartum exercise to accelerate the process of uterine involution.
