A Quasi Experimental Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Hot Application in Breast Engorgement among Post Natal Mothers Admitted in Post Natal Ward in Selected Hospital
Abstract: The word 'postnatal' comes from the Latin word 'post' which means 'after' and 'natal' means 'of birth'. It is the period beginning immediately after the birth of a child and extending for about 6 weeks. Worldwide the incidence rate of breast engorgement is 1: 8000 and in India it is 1: 6500 women. It occurs between the third to fourth day of postpartum and more than 2/3 of women develop tenderness on the fifth day of postpartum. Some develop as late as 9 to 10 day postpartum. Approximately 2/3 of women experience at least moderate symptom of breast engorgement. Conclusion: Hot application compress with traditional methods reduce the breast engorgement and promote lactation.
