Background: Delivery is one of the most stressful events in women’s life. Excessive anxiety, in turn, increases delivery and pregnancy complications. Mother’s positive experience of delivery leads to more effective maternal-fetal attachment in the first few hours of birth. Objectives: The present study aimed to compare the effects of acupressure at two different acupoints on anxiety level and maternal-fetal attachment in primiparous women.

 

Materials and Methods: In this study, 150 primiparous women were allocated to acupressure at GB-21 acupoint, acupressure at SP-6 acupoint, and control group. The women in their active phase of delivery were enrolled in the study and pressure was applied to the acupoints for 20 minutes. Mother’s anxiety level was assessed using Spielberger’s questionnaire before and one hour after the intervention. In addition, maternal-fetal attachment behaviors were evaluated using Avant’s questionnaire during the first breastfeeding. Then the data were introduced to the SPSS (v. 13) and were analyzed using t test and one way ANOVA.

 

Results: The results revealed no significant difference among the three groups regarding the anxiety level before the intervention (P > 0.05). One hour after the intervention, this measure was significantly lower in the intervention groups in comparison to the control group (P < 0.001). However, no significant difference was found between the two intervention groups in this regard (P > 0.05). Moreover, maternal-fetal attachment was higher in the intervention groups in comparison with the control group (P < 0.001).

Conclusions: Acupressure at both acupoints reduced anxiety level and increased maternal-fetal attachment. This method can be easily used in the delivery room.

Résultats : Les résultats n'ont révélé aucune différence significative entre les trois groupes concernant le niveau d'anxiété avant l'intervention (P > 0,05). Une heure après l'intervention, cette mesure était significativement plus faible dans les groupes d'intervention par rapport au groupe témoin (P < 0,001). Cependant, aucune différence significative n'a été trouvée entre les deux groupes d'intervention à cet égard (P > 0,05). De plus, l'attachement materno-fœtal était plus élevé dans les groupes d'intervention par rapport au groupe témoin (P < 0,001). Conclusions : L'acupression aux deux points d'acupuncture a réduit le niveau d'anxiété et augmenté l'attachement materno-fœtal. Cette méthode peut être facilement utilisée en salle d'accouchement.
