[Study of psychological nursing to ease pain during labor].

[Article in Chinese]

Abstract

100 labouring women were selected in the hospital and divided into psychological support group and control group randomly (50 in each group) in this study. The former was given psychological education and support by special staff and the later was managed in routine methods. The result showed that the serious pain rate of the psychological support group was lower than that of the control group in the first stage of labour (P < 0.01). There was a significant difference between the pain levels in two groups in the second stage of labor (P < 0.05). The time of the first stage, the second stage, and total labor course in the psychological support group was shorter than that of the control group (P < 0.05). The normal labor rate of the psychological support group was much higher than that of the control group (P < 0.001). This study indicated that providing psychological support to the parturients may reduce the pain level during delivery and decrease the difficult labor rate.
