The PEACH Study

Official Title: Pelvic Floor Disorders in the First Year After Childbirth: the PEACH Study


The Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is conducting a research study. The goal is to learn more about problems with urine or stool control, prolapse (feeling or seeing a vaginal bulge), and pain with sex. These problems can affect mothers after delivery when they are most busy with their newborn.

If you join this study, you will complete a series of online surveys over a maximum of 12 months. The surveys will ask about urine and stool control, pelvic issues, and sexual issues. Each survey will take about 5-10 minutes. Information will also be collected from your medical record. All data will be kept completely secure and confidential.

Eligibility criteria:

You may be eligible if you:
- Are 18 years of age or older
- Recently had a full term vaginal delivery of one baby
- Able to speak and read English
