Abstract: Background: The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of second-degree perineal tears, obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASI), and high vaginal tears in primiparous women. The pregnancy characteristics, hereditary factors, obstetric management and delivery process are associated with the incidence of perineal injury and vaginal tears. Methods: True- experimental design (posttest only without control group design) was adopted for this study by using purposive sampling technique was selected, sample size was 30 postnatal mothers with perineal injury and vaginal tear were selected from the postnatal ward. The data collection periods were six weeks. Investigator selected a post-natal mother with perineal injury and vaginal tear for assessing the episiotomy wound by REEDA scale and NUMERICAL pain scale Results: In Post-test shows moderate 24 (80%) and mean post-test score p value <0.005level of significant. The data shown that, the level of pain score calculated "r" value of 0.531, "p" value of 0.002. Shown highly statistically significant different in effectiveness on betadinesitz bath among postnatal mothers. The correlation between pain and level of perineal wound injury was calculated by "p" value of p=0.002. Conclusion: The study shows that betadinesitz bath was effective in episiotomy wound healing among postnatal mothers with perineal injury and vaginal tear.
