Abstract: This study aims to assess the effectiveness of upright position in pain perception and progress of labour among primi mothers during first stage of labour. Post test only control group design was used. The sample comprised 60 primi mothers in active stage of labour selected by random sampling technique. Numerical pain intensity scale (0-10) was used for pain perception and observation schedule was used for assessment of progress of labour. Intermittent upright (Each position was provided for 15 minutes with 10 minutes rest) position was given to experimental group from the onset of active phase of first stage of labour and routine care was given to control group. The data were analyzed by using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Data shows that after 2 hours of intervention obtained mean difference was 1.96 with calculated ?t? value 4.26 that was significant at 0.05. Similar findings were found at full dilatation, mean difference was 2.4 with the calculated ?t? value 5.45, which was found significant at 0.05 level. Analysis of progress of labour assessment scores shows that mean difference was 1 with calculated ?t? value 2.94 that was significant at 0.05 level. Similar findings of progress of labour were observed at full dilatation, obtained mean difference was 2.85 with calculated ?t? value 8.63 that was significant at 0.05 level. Conclusion: The present study shows that upright position intervention reduce pain perception and enhances progress of labour among the primi mothers.
