- Labor is a physiological process in pregnant mothers occurring in the culmination period of pregnancy. A long process of pregnancy, which will eventually lead to the delivery of one or more newborn infants, can raise fear and worries triggering the feeling of anxiety to happen to pregnant mothers. Excessive anxiety in facing labor is to be overcome with affirmation relaxation (positive thoughts) to reduce their level of anxiety. This study aimed to examine whether or not there was an effect of affirmation relaxation therapy towards anxiety in pregnant mothers on the third-trimester in facing labor. The study was a quasi experimental research approach with one group pre test-post test design with t-test paired test. Sample was taken by total sampling to18 pregnant mothers on third trimester at Puskesmas Manyaran from September to October 2016. Results indicated that the t-count was 5.169, meaning that there was an effect in the intervention of affirmation relaxation therapy towards the level of anxiety. Furthermore, the p-value was 0.000 lower than the -value which was 0.05 indicating that there was a significant difference. Thus, affirmation relaxation therapy can be employed to third-trimester pregnant mothers with anxiety in facing labor
