Abstract:
Purpose:

Sheng-Hwa-Tang is used to cultivate blood, activate circulation, and “clean blood” for post-partum women in Chinese society. Since its frequent use and valued efficacy in Chinese post-partum care, it’s hard to ignore the profile of post-partum women taking Sheng-Hwa-Tang, especially toward their motivation and medication-taking behaviors. The aim of this study was to describe motivation and medication-taking behaviors toward Sheng-Hwa-Tang among post-partum women.

Methods:

A cross-sectional study design with questionnaires, based on a large study, was to collect information of motivation and medication-taking behaviors toward Sheng-Hwa-Tang. We surveyed a total of 1219 participant of Taiwan recruited with inform consents.

Results:

This study found that the most motivation were efficacy to participants’ body of Sheng-Hwa-Tang and to promote health and prevent diseases subsequently(11.41±1.84 vs. 15 of total score and 17.06 vs. 30 of total score, respectively). Factors that affect behaviors of taking Sheng-Hwa-Tang were self-initiated to use, mother or mother-in-law driving to use, and follow the tradition to use Sheng-Hwa-Tang. Yet, was there noteworthy that post-partum women revealed the “negotiation” behavior that take uterine contractives (such as ergonovine) and Sheng-Hwa-Tang at the same time(9.1±2.43 vs. 15 of total score), even both has the same effects of uterus contraction that will be dangerous to post-partum women.

Conclusion:

The results showed that Chinese post-partum women have strong motivation to use Sheng-Hwa-Tang, such as they valued the efficacy to the reconstruction women body constitution and promotion of health, yet controversially, more “passive” behavior to medication-taking behaviors, such as being drived to use and “negotiation” between traditional medicine and modern western medicine conflict. These results may be adapted into post-partum nursing care to ensure women health condition in post-partum period.
