Abstract: A quasi experimental study was conducted with the purpose to assess and compare the pre-test and post-test labour pain intensity score, labor outcomes and to determine the association of level of labor pain intensity among nullipara mothers during 1st stage of labor in experimental and comparison group. Non probability purposive sampling technique was used to select the study subjects. Structured peroforma was prepared to collect baseline data, Numeric pain intensity scale (standardized scale) was used to assess the pain intensity immediately before and after the abdominal effleurage and routine maternity care and record analysis peroforma was used to assess the labor outcomes (maternal outcomes in terms of total duration of labor, nature of delivery and fetal outcomes in terms of APGAR score at 5 min after birth and fetal heart sound score immediately before and after the abdominal effleurage and routine maternity care). Findings revealed that abdominal effleurage was having significant effect on reducing the labor pain intensity during active phase but was not effective during transition phase in experimental group. Further the result shows that there was no significant effect on total duration of labor, fetal heart sound score and finally the APGAR score of newborn at 5 min after birthh Paper
