Abstract

This study assessed patient satisfaction with the use of a spiritually based (mantram/sacred word) intervention in expecting couples. A mixed-methods design, experimental repeated measures with interviews at 6-month follow-up was conducted. Satisfaction was moderate to high. Mantram was used for labor pains and uncertainty. Implications include scheduling flexible classes earlier in pregnancy. A larger randomized study is needed to assess intervention effectiveness.
