- Multi-sensory stimulus, parturition pain, parturition length
Safe and satisfied parturition are influenced by anxiety suffered by mothers during maternity. Anxiety and pain during maternity cause stress responses. It increases catecholamine causing vasoconstriction which influences to womb contraction, pain, and parturition length. Multi-sensory stimuli are identified to be able in decreasing anxiety and facilitating maternal physiology. Multi-sensory stimuli are stimuli interventions on several human senses which are able to be responded by brain. It fosters influential perceptions to behaviors and emotions so it has indirect potency to parturition process. This research aims to analyze multi-sensory stimulus on maternity to parturition. This quasi-experimental research used nonequivalent control group design. The sample consisted of 60 people. The bivariable analysis design used Mann Whitney test and non-paired T-test. Two proportion test assisted by SPSS was used to find out the influence strength. The results showed that there was an influence of Multi-sensory stimulus to pain and length of parturition. The average of the pain during 6-8 aperture was on scale 7 (SD=1.73) meanwhile on control group it was on scale 8 (SD=1.7). The average of the parturition was 331.67 (SD=97.001) while the control group was 400.00 minutes (SD=163.87). It is important for midwifery to explore various non-pharmacological effort to support parturition process and outcomes.
