In a nutshell: Falls after giving birth are not well documented, according to this American paper, even though women are at risk of falls at this time, especially during the first attempts to walk. A fall prevention team, and patient-centred fall prevention strategy, were formed to decrease the incidence of postnatal falls. The results of this have been used to continue with further research in falls prevention.
