Relaxation, Pain Intensity, Labor


Relaxation is one way to reduce pain through non-pharmacological methods. A way of dealing with pain that teaches patients to minimize the activity of the sympathetic and autonomic nervous systems. This research was conducted to determine the effect of deep breathing relaxation techniques on reducing the intensity of labor pain in the PMB working area of the Rumbai Community Health Center. This research uses a quasi-experimental pre-test and post-test design. The research sample consisted of 40 primiparous mothers who underwent normal delivery in the PMB working area of the Rumbai Community Health Center. The sampling technique is Purposive Sampling.  The results obtained for the group that received treatment, namely being given breathing relaxation techniques, resulted in a decrease in pain intensity, namely at pretest 13 people (65%) felt moderate pain and 7 people (35%) felt severe pain, while at posttest 12 people (60%) felt mild pain, 8 people (40%) felt moderate pain, and no respondents felt severe pain. For the control group, there was an increase in pain. During the pretest, 11 respondents (55%) felt moderate pain and 9 people (45%) felt mild pain, while during the post-test 11 people (55%) felt moderate pain, 6 people ( 30%) felt mild pain, and 3 people (15%) felt severe pain. The results of data analysis showed that the p-value was <0.001. It was concluded that the intensity of pain during labor can be reduced by using deep breathing relaxation techniques.
