Evidence

The PGQ is the first condition-specific measure developed for people with PGP. The PGQ had acceptably high reliability and validity in people with PGP both during pregnancy and postpartum, it is simple to administer, and it is feasible for use in clinical practice. [1]

Reliability

Test-retest reliability showed high intraclass correlation coefficient estimates: .93 (95% confidence interval 0.86–0.96) for the PGQ activity subscale and .91 (95% confidence interval 0.84–0.95) for the PGQ symptom subscale. [1]
