Postpartum mothers with a history of episiotomy during vaginal delivery are prone to perineal wound infections. Nutritional status has an important role in the process of wound healing. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of nutritional status with the process of healing perineal wounds. The research method was conducted with a correlational analytic design with a cross-sectional approach. Purposive sampling was used to select 37 mothers in the postpartum day 5 as a study sample. Data collection was done by observation with a checklist and questionnaire. The variables of this study were the nutritional status and perineal wound healing. The Chi-Square test was used to analyse the data with a significant level of ρ ≤ α (0.05). The results of this study stated that there was a relationship between nutritional status and perineal wound healing (ρ = 0.002; X2 = 12.282 a). It was concluded, that nutritional status is one of the important things that must be considered in perineal wound healing in postpartum mothers. Going forward, it is important to consider factors that affect nutritional status, including cultural matters on post-partum mothers.
