Breast feeding initiates a profound bond between mother and infant. It has been observed that sucking reflex of a newborn is at its height 20-30 minutes after birth. If the infants is not fed then the reflex diminishes rapidly to reappear adequately forty-hours later. Nurses have a special responsibility and capacity to promote breastfeeding. Even though all the mothers were getting intravenous methergin the researcher was interested to identify the effect of immediate breast-feeding on contraction of uterus without methergin. Observation checklist was used to assess the breast feeding behavior. If the specified behaviors are present then each behavior is given a score of 1 and if not present then the score is 0. The maximum score is 14. A quasi- experimental design with two groups design was used. The setting of the study was the second stage labor room of Rhode Island Hospital. Result shows that when breast-feeding is initiated between 6-10 minutes duration of third stage of labor is lesser in group-I (M=6.2+2.7) minutes compared to that of group-II (M=7.8+4.2) minutes. Shows that 18(60%) mothers in group-I have a postpartum score of 35-39 as compared to 16(53.3%) mothers in group-II. Twelve (43.3%) mothers in group-II have the postpartum score of40-44. Thus the researcher concluded that there is higher score whish indicates better postpartum status....
A study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program (STP) on knowledge regarding bleeding within, after 20 weeks and during postpartum period (PPP) among Staff Nurses (SN). A quantitative approach with one group pre-test (PT) post-test (PST) design was used in 30 sample by non probability purposive sampling technique. The data was collected and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The result of the study showed that 60% of SN had moderate knowledge 26.67% had poor knowledge and 13.33% had good knowledge during the PT and significant changes occurred during PST as 86.67% had excellent knowledge and 13.33% had good knowledge. The Structured Knowledge Questionnaire (SKQ) was used to assess knowledge level of SN regarding Obstetrics Haemorrhage (OH). The mean PST knowledge score is significantly higher than mean PT knowledge score. The calculated â??tâ?? value (â??tâ??=20.02, p< 0.01) is greater than the table value 2.009 at 0.05 level of significance in all sections. The study also found that there is significant association between PT knowledge scores and selected demographic variables. Thus the study suggested that STP is effective in improving the knowledge of SN regarding OH....
