Abstract : Introduction: the pregnancy, the delivery and postpartum period transform woman body and can cause low back and pelvic girdle pain. Midwives are the primary professionals in the management of early postpartum pain. There are several different supports, each having their own effectiveness. Objectives: To identify the criteria for the consideration of low back and pelvic girdle pain by midwives in the early postpartum period and to list the different care provided by the midwives and the difficulties in their implementation. Material and method: a survey was carried out using questionnaires elaborated and then distributed in different maternity of the region PACA. Included were hospital midwives in the public or private sector working in post-natal service. Liberal midwives are not included. Questionnaires not filled or not interpreted are excluded from the study. Results: Midwives often take care of the lumbar and pelvic girdle pain which they characterize as moderate and occurring during mobilization. The birth process is important criteria for them. Treatment is initially by prescribing paracetamol and NSAIDs and then turns to osteopathy and various manual practices. Conclusion: The small number of responses gives little power to this study and the results are not generalizable. Low back and pelvic girdle pain are frequently treated by midwives. But many obstacles are identified. Better informations and the learning of a screening for these pains and the techniques that can treat them could improve the management.
