About

In this proposed study, the investigators hope to assess the quality of recovery after delivery in a local population that would take into account physiological and psychological parameters to better understand the recovery process after delivery. The investigators will identify risk factors, especially those that are modifiable and associated with a poorer ObsQoR score and hence a poor quality of recovery after delivery. This data may then be used to educate women and manage expectations in the postpartum period, and help develop potential therapeutic interventions.

Full description

Traditional postpartum outcome measures do not describe the patient experience or quality of recovery (QoR) after childbirth. A recent obstetric-specific recovery tool (ObsQoR-10) has been developed to assess the quality of recovery in patients in various mode of delivery on aspects of pain, drug side effects, comfort, control, ability to hold and feed the baby, independent mobilization and achievement of personal hygiene. However, this questionnaire is not yet validated in Asian population, especially in Chinese- and Malay-speaking patients. The investigators aim to investigate the validity, reliability, feasibility, and responsiveness of the Chinese and Malay translated versions of ObsQoR-10. The investigators will first perform a pre-test in 5-10 patients for each language, of which an interview will be conducted to seek for their feedback and suggestions. Modification of questionnaire will be done if necessary, followed by recruitment of 112 patients at postpartum day 1 to fill in the Chinese/Malay translated ObsQoR-10 and other questionnaires related to their mood, anxiety and pain. In this proposed study, the investigators hope to assess the quality of recovery after delivery in a local population that would take into account physiological and psychological parameters to better understand the recovery process after delivery. The investigators will identify risk factors, especially those that are modifiable and associated with a poorer ObsQoR score and hence a poor quality of recovery after delivery. This data may then be used to educate women and manage expectations in the postpartum period, and help develop potential therapeutic interventions.
