To compare the effectiveness of betadine ointment and lavender oil application on episiotomy wound healing.4. To find the association between episiotomy wound healing with the selected demographic variables such as age, educational status, economical status. Method: A comparative evaluative approach for Quasi experimental research design was considered.60 samples were selected through probability simple random technique and were assessed through Numerical pain scale for pain and REEDA scale for infection and structured questionnaire for demographic information. Settings: PNC ward of selected hospitals. Results: Researcher applied paired t-test for the assessment of effectiveness of Lavender oil application on pain score of PNC mothers. Corresponding p-values were 0.000, which are small (less than 0.05). Lavender oil application was proved to be significantly effective in reducing the pain of PNC mothers. Researcher applied two sample z-test for comparison of REEDA scores of Lavender oil and Betadine ointment groups. Corresponding p-values were small (less than 0.05) at all the timepoints. This indicates that the Lavender oil application is significantly better than betadine ointment on episiotomy wound healing. Conclusion: The study concluded that it reduces the chances of infection, reduces pain and uneasiness caused due to incision made on the perineum. Micro reports of culture and sensitivity have also proven the effectiveness of the lavender oil as it stated that no organism was found in the lavender group of patients.
