Of the study group 26 % had excellent pain relief as compared to 0 % in control group. The mean rate of cervical dilation was 3.71cm/Hr in the study group and 1.53cm/Hr in the control group. The mean duration of active phase 1st stage, 2nd stage, 3rd stage of labour were 116.95mins, 21.23mins, 4.36mins respectively in the study group as compared to this 236.44mins, 23.57mins, 4.83mins respectively in the control group.
