The Army has a mandatory Pregnancy and Postpartum Physical Training (P3T) Program to provide a place for pregnant and postpartum Soldiers to safely maintain their fitness during pregnancy and to recover and improve their fitness and attain height/weight standards postpartum. Many individuals are unaware of the program or do not utilize the program for a variety of reasons. Some reasons include that the program is under-resourced (in personnel, equipment, and/or facilities), Soldier unwillingness to participate, high operational tempo (OPTEMPO), and so on.
One purpose of this survey is to identify how familiar leaders are at multiple echelons with the program. For those who are familiar, a second purpose is to identify leaders’ beliefs about the strengths and weaknesses of the program and how the program might best fit the needs of leaders and Soldiers alike. The long term goal of the P3T program is to achieve a balance in Soldier health and support of the mission.
