Abstract: Background: Breastfeeding is an unequalled way of providing ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants. It is also an integral part of the reproductive process with important implications for the health of mothers. Objective of the study: This study is attempted to determine the effectiveness of breastfeeding positioning interventions to minimize fatigue among primi postnatal caesarean mothers during breast feeding. Material and methods: The study adopted a quantitative research approach and a quasi-experimental research design. A structured interview questionnaire was used for assessing the effectiveness of breast feeding positioning interventions to minimize fatigue among 60 primi postnatal caesarean mothers during breast feeding, selected by using convenient sampling technique in postnatal wards of Gauhati Medical College and Hospital, Guwahati, Assam. Data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics in the software package named SPSS 20 version. Result of the study: The study revealed that in experimental group pre-test majority 23 (76.7%) of participants had severe fatigue and 7 (23.3%) had moderate fatigue where in post-test majority 16 (53.3%) of participants had severe fatigue, 12 (40%) had moderate fatigue and 2 (6.7%) had mild fatigue. The effectiveness of breast feeding positioning intervention to minimize fatigue among primi postnatal cesarean mothers during breast feeding in experimental group. Findings revealed that mean pre-test score was 55.17?6.428 and in post-test mean score was 46.70?10.99 with mean difference was 8.46. The effectiveness was tested using paired t test with obtained t value is 3.677 was significant at p<0.05 level. Result revealed that breast feeding positioning intervention was effective in minimizing fatigue among primi postnatal cesarean mothers during breast feeding in experimental group. Comparison of post-test level of fatigue among primi postnatal cesarean mothers during breast feeding in experimental and control group. Findings revealed that mean post-test score was 46.70?10.99 and in control group mean post-test score was 54.03?3.469 with mean difference was 7.33. The comparison was tested using unpaired t test with obtained t value is 3.484 was statistically significant at p<0.05 level. Result revealed that breast feeding positioning intervention was effective in minimizing fatigue among primi postnatal cesarean mothers during breast feeding in experimental group as compared to control group. Conclusions: Findings concluded that there was significant differences between the pre?test and post test scores of primi postnatal cesarean mothers who received breastfeeding positioning interventions. Breast feeding positioning interventions has no complication, less cost effective, easily available. The investigator found that breast feeding positioning interventions can be best effective to minimize fatigue during breast feeding in primi postnatal cesarean mother.
