Abstract
 
Perineal wound pain is discomfort that occurs in postpartum mothers. Based on
clinical practice experience in PMB Dince Safrina, 70% of postpartum mothers
complained of pain and feeling uncomfortable. One of the alternatives to reduce
perineal wound pain is sitz bath therapy. This study was to determine the effect
of sitz bath therapy on perineal wound pain in postpartum mothers. This quasy
experimental study used one group pre-test and posttest design. This research
was conducted at PMB Dince Safrina in March-June 2019. The population was
all 6-hour postpartum mothers who had perineal wound at PMB Dince Safrina
with a sample size of 17 taken by purposive sampling technique. The method of
data collection was observation with an observation sheet that contained a scale
of pain intensity measurement using the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS). The results
showed that the average intensity of perineal wound pain before and after sitz
bath therapy was 5.59 (SD 0.939) and 2.47 (SD 0.943). The results of
statistical tests using Wilcoxon on the 95% confidence level found that there
was an effect of sitz bath therapy on the intensity of perineal wound pain in
postpartum mothers (p value = 0.000). It is recommended for midwives to
consider sitz bath therapy as an alternative in the provision of nonpharmacological

care to reduce the intensity of perineal wound pain in
postpartum mothers.
