Abstract

Background: The Investigator conducted a study to Assess the Effectiveness of Breast Crawl Technique on
selected, Maternal and neonatal Outcomes Among Mothers Admitted in Labour Ward at selected hospitals
of Kheda-anand District Gujarat.was carried out by researcher. The objectives of the study were: (1) To
assess the effectiveness of breast crawl technique on maternal and neonatal outcome among experimental
group and control group. (2) To find out the association between maternal and neonatal outcomes and
selected demographic variables in experimental group. Research Design: A quasi experimental research
approach was used with non- equivalent control group post test only design. The researcher used nonprobability
purposive sampling technique for selecting the 40 samples. Tools :Latch scale was used to
assess the initiation of breast feeding, Visual analogue pain scale was used to assess the intensity of pain,
and APGAR score was used for newborn assessment. Validity was assessed by 7 experts. Reliability of latch
scale, Visual analogue pain scale and APGAR Score was ascertained by using Karl Pearson’s co-relation
coefficient formula. Data Analysis & Results: The data will be analyzed by descriptive statistics such as
Mean, Standard deviation, Frequency, Percentage. The mean score of effectiveness of breast crawl technique
on initiation of breast feeding, intensity of pain, newborn assessment was higher in experimental group than
the control group. So it was revealed that there was significant difference between experimental group and
control group. For comparison of effectiveness of breast crawl technique on initiation of breast feeding,
intensity of pain, newborn assessment in that mean score was higher and calculated “t” test value is 4.83
which is greater than tabulated value 2.09. So, that the research hypothesis is accepted and proved that there
will be significant association between initiation of breast feeding, intensity of pain, newborn assessment
between the experimental group and control group. The finding of the study also revealed that there was
significant association between the initiation of breast feeding, intensity of pain, newborn assessment with
selected demographic variables.
