The purpose of this phenomenological study was exploring nursing support during labor experienced by postpartum women. Study participants were selected by using purposive sampling from postpartum units of two hospitals in Bangkok. Thirty-seven postpartum women were willing to participate in this study. In-depth interview with tape-record was used to collect data. All interviews were transcribed verbatim and then analyzed by using Giorgi’s content analysis. The study finding showed a substantial theme, called nursing support during labor consisting of 3 categories : providing nursing care, giving encouragement, and giving information. Providing nursing care was referred to activities managed by nurses in order to help laboring women reduce pain, be safe, and feel comfortable. Giving encouragement was psychological support, which nurses provided to laboring women in various manners including asking sign and symptom, touching, and being with a patient. Giving information was referred to any instructions, suggestions, and information of laboring progress needed by laboring women. The finding of this study indicated that laboring women needed any kinds of nursing support to help them appropriately deal with pain, anxiety, and stress during child delivery. In addition, laboring women expressed their needs, which were not responded by nurses at that time. Particular examples were allowing their husband’s stay in a labor room, treating them with respect, and being polite to them. According to the findings, Nurses should emphasize the importance of nursing support to help women cope with labor and meet their needs as well as the importance of family bonding, i.e. allowing a husband to stay with his wife during child delivery.
