Post-cesarean section women may experience severe pain due to operative procedure in which most of them might have unpleasant experiences due to inadequate pain management. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments can be used to minimize the pain. A combination of deep breathing relaxation techniques and music therapy is a non-pharmacological method to reduce pain, but there is limited study on combination technique intervention for post-cesarean section. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of a combination of deep breath relaxation technique and music therapy in reducing pain severity in post-cesarean section patients. This study applied a quasi-experiment method with purposive sampling using control group. The sample of this study was 52 respondents (26 respondents for the control group and 26 respondents for the experimental group) from two private hospitals in Jakarta. Women in the experimental group received the combination technique and those in the control group received only deep breathing relaxation technique. The outcome pain severity was measured by NRS (Numeric Rating Scale) before and after intervention. This study conducted both univariate and bivariate analyses. The result of this study showed that the combination of deep breath relaxation techniques and music therapy was more effective in reducing pain severity in post-cesarean section patients (p value <0.0001; r -0.857) compared to deep breathing relaxation techniques alone (p value <0.0001; r -0.766). It is therefore important to consider implementing the combination techniques in hospital settings.
