This study explored the effect of Health Quotient (HQ) management on maternal quality of life and the incidence of health problem during puerperium in Cox’s Interaction Model of Client Health Behavior (IMCHB). A quasi-experimental posttest design with two groups was used. Totally 60 new mothers were conveniently selected and divided into observation group (n=30) and control group (n=30). According to one’s HQ level, the observation group was provided with individualized reaching under the guidance of IMCHB, while the control group was provided with conventional teaching. At 42-days postpartum clinic, the incidence of maternal health problem and the quality of life were compared between the two groups. After intervention, the incidences of low back pain, constipation and other health problems in the observation group were significantly lower than those in the control group (P < 0.05), and the scores of all dimensions of quality of life in the observation group were significantly higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05). The results indicate that, compared with conventional teaching method, the teaching mode of HQ management based on IMCHB can effectively reduce the incidence of postpartum health problems and improve maternal quality of life.
