Nurses should have knowledge of human being as ?WHOLE? individual that is understanding of physical body and functioning of mind. Therefore, holistic nursing care includes the mind, body, spirit, and the environment. During child birth women goes through the pain and discomfort, goal of nursing care should be to promote comfort and maintain the well-being of clients. Nurses could use non-pharmacological interventions by utilizing alternative and complementary therapies which are based on a balance of body, mind and spirit Alternative and complementary modalities provided nurses with a mean to treat the body through massage, therapeutic touch, hydrotherapy, and deep breathing exercises; relieve the mind through humor, imagery, hypnotherapy and music; comfort the soul through prayers; and support significant interpersonal interaction through healing processes.
