Abstract:

Session presented on: Friday, July 26, 2013

Purpose:

Continuous labor support is the provision of uninterrupted non-medical aid and necessary support given to the mother throughout the birth process. Continuous labor support is considered to be an important function of midwives/nurses, and includes nursing practices such as actively helping the mother to give birth, meeting her emotional needs and requests, ensuring her comfort, providing her with information and protecting her rights.

Aim of the study: This study has been planned to examine the effects of continuous nursing support in the 2ndstage of labor on the birth process and the mother’s perception of the birth.

Methods:

 The study was conducted between January 1, 2012-March 31, 2012, at a university medicine faculty gynecology and obstetrics department delivery room. The study included 30 women each in the experimental group and control group. The experimental group received continuous nursing support during the 2ndstage of labor. The control group received usual care. The data of the research was collected through the survey form prepared by the researchers and the Perception of Birth Scale (POBS).

Results:

 Amongst the women participating in the study, 13.3% of the women in the experimental group described birth as a painful process while this rate was found to be 63.3% in the control group. While the POBS average was 103.93±17.67 in the experimental group, this was found to be 58.70±11.80 in the control group. A statistically significant difference was observed between these two findings.

Conclusion:

It has been found that continuous nursing support during the 2nd stage of labor has positive effects on the labor process and the perception of birth.
