Abstract:
The aim of this research was to study the correlation between nursing support and birth experience as perceived by Thai mothers. Helping mothers in labor is the essence of intrapartum nursing care. The potential role of labor support in improving labor and birth outcomes has received much attention recently within both professional and consumer-oriented literature. This article explores Rubin's framework, social support and caring as a foundation for intrapartum nursing care. A woman who is able to cope with the stress of labor tends to feel more satisfied with her experience. The perception of support from nurses has been shown to enhance a woman's coping efforts and positive feelings about her birth experience. Design: A retrospective study and quantitative approach was used. Two instruments, nursing support and birth experience (internal reliability were .91 and .89 respectively), were used to collect data from 179 post-partum women hospitalized in seven community hospitals in Thailand. T-test, ANOVA and Pearson correlation were used to analyze data. Results: The study revealed that a positive significant correlation exists between nursing support and birth experience in Thai women's perception. Nursing support given during labor has been shown the significant relationships with some subcategories of birth experiences, there were; self control; thinking about baby; and family support. Conclusions: The present study shows that the more satisfied nursing support provided to women during labor leads to more positive birthing experiences. It indicates that nurses have an important role in assisting women to cope with the stress of labor. This study has shown that the integration of Rubin's framework, social support and caring played the important role in intrapartum nursing care.
