Soumya SR, Bindu CG
A quasi experimental study was conducted to determine the effect of Supportive Education Intervention Package on pain and anxiety during labour among sixty primigravida mothers. The subjects selected by purposive sampling of their 36th week of gestation from OPD and OBG ward of Government Taluk hospital, Nedumangadu, Thiruvananthapuram district. Data were collected by using socio demographic proforma, Numerical Pain Rating Scale and Beck Anxiety Inventory. Thirty subjects in the experimental group received Supportive Education Intervention Package in two sessions at their 36th and 37th week of gestation and thirty subjects in the control group received routine care. At 36th week, antenatal mothers were given video teaching on breathing exercise, bearing down techniques and different positions in labour; lecture on pain relieving measures and medical and nursing management in labour. Posttest was conducted within one hour after delivery for both control and experimental groups. The result showed that the pain and anxiety in the experimental group were less than that of control group at (p<0.01). The findings showed that this non – invasive technique can be effectively used to decrease the pain and anxiety during labour and encourage mothers for normal vaginal delivery.
