Abstract

The childbirth experience is a complex event and an important life experience for women, with long-term impacts throughout life. The experience influences the future well-being of the woman, her child, and their relationship,nas well as the woman's relationship with her partner. The aim of the study was to assess the maternal satisfaction and views about biofeedback and aromatherapy during childbirth among primigravida mothers. In this study, 400 low risk nulliparous women were randomly divided into two groups as aromatherapy massage (n=200) and biofeedback therapy (n=200). The mothers were received either aroma therapy or biofeedback during their intrapartum period, and they were interviewed a day after their childbirth to know about their satisfaction and views about the special interventions. Results of research showed that aromatherapy provides more comfort and relaxation than biofeedback therapy (P=0.2997). Most of the mothers reported that they would like to suggest these interventions to their friends and relatives, because these interventions provide comfort and relaxation than regular interventions (P=0.225). When considering the satisfaction during childbirth 78.5% of women in aromatherapy and 68% of women in biofeedback therapy described that they were satisfied with the experience. Listening to women’s views and understanding their different perspectives, the study was suggested that, non pharmacological pain relief methods like aromatherapy or biofeedback can be used in every hospitals to improve maternal satisfaction and to promote labour outcomes.
