The effect quantum class of labor on pain intensity in normal labor
Author(s): Rina, Runjati, Daru Lestyanto
Abstract: Background: Pain of labor is a normal physiological condition that occurs in the mother. Labor pain can cause fear, stress and anxiety which causes the release of excessive hormones such as catecholamines and cortisol into the circulation. This can result in decreased uterine contractions, decreased uteroplacental circulation, reduced blood flow and oxygen to the uterus, and the emergence of uterine ischemia which increases the pain impulses. To overcome problems and prevent complications during pregnancy by conducting a quantum labor class aimed at increasing the knowledge of pregnant women and preparing for deliveries that are carried out continuously. Method: The type of research used is Quasy Experiment with a pre-test – post-test control group design. This study compiled two groups, namely the intervention group given the quantum class of labor and the control group given the class of pregnant women. Technique Probability sampling with method cluster random sampling is used to get the 30 respondents were divided into two groups. Results: The results of the statistical test Mann WI thney show a p value 0.000 (<0.05) which means that there is an influence of the quantum class of labor on the reduction in pain intensity of patients in normal labor. Conclusion: The results of the study after being given nursing action decreased the intensity of pain in patients who received the quantum labor class, so that complementary therapy was effectively implemented for patients who experience anxiety which causes increased pain intensity, especially in patients with normal delivery pregnant women.
