Shama Praveen, Priya J P, Gomathi Mahalingam.

Abstract
Background: The postpartum period is the period when women adjust physically and psychologically after the delivery of the baby. It is the period after the end of labor during which special attention of a midwife is required on the women and the baby. Childbirth is a physical and emotional experience. It is also an irrevocable event that changes a woman forever. The more realistic women’s expectations about the birth are, the more likely she is to have a positive experience.

Objectives: The objectives of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme (STP) regarding perineal care among primi mothers.

Material and Methods: A quantitative approach with quasi-experimental, non-equivalent control group, pretest post-test design was conducted in selected hospital of Doiwala, Dehradun, Uttarakhand. 60 primi mothers (30 in the experimental group and 30 in control group) were selected using non-probability convenient sampling technique. Pre-test was taken with the help of structured knowledge questionnaire in experimental and control group, and STP was administered using charts and posters in the experimental group. Post-test was conducted after 7 days of intervention using the same questionnaire. Perineal pain was measured by numerical pain rating scale on the day of delivery, 4th and 8th postpartum day.

Results: The study shows that the mean post-test knowledge score was 23.73 ± 1.41 in the experimental group and 12.63 ± 2.87 in control group. The “t” calculated value is 19.003 which is more than the tabulated value of 2.00 at 0.05 level of significance.

Conclusion: The findings of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between the mean post-test scores in both groups; therefore, it was concluded that teaching regarding perineal care was effective in enhancing the knowledge of primi mothers in the experimental group.
