The samples of this research were divided into two, one of which was a treatment group with exercise therapy treatment that consisted of 25 samples, and another one was a control group with early mobilization that consisted of 25 samples. The pain intensity was measured using VAS (Visual Analog Scale). Results: Test of pain intensity in two groups of mothers after sectio caesarea, there was a difference with a value p = 0.009 (p = <0.05).
