Investigating the visual-oral effect of Quran verses on the intensity of labor pain among prim-parous patients
Background and ObjectiveThe pain of travail is categorized among the most severe pains, so that relieving it can lead to simplicity of the process and avoiding unseasonable cesareans. Given the research into the effect of Quran's sound on pain and anxiety reduction, this study aimed at investigating the auditory and visual effects of Quran verses on the pain intensity of step of travail among prim-parous women.
MethodIn this semi-experimental clinical trial study, 102 eligible prim-parous women were randomly divided into intervention and control groups. In the intervention group, until the end of the active phase of the first stage of travail, about 20 minutes of the verses of Maryam were displayed each hour through the screen by hearing the Quran's audio via the headphones. In both groups, pain intensity and vital signs were measured every hour and the heart rate of the fetus was recorded. All ethical issues were observed in this study and the authors did not report any conflicts of interest.
ResultsThere was a significant difference between the control and intervention groups as for the duration of the first step of travail using independent t-test (p<0/05). The mean of the first step of travail in the intervention group was shorter than 100 minutes. The Mann-Whitney test showed a faster opening of the uterine cavity during the active phase of the first stage of travail (p<0/05), so that all intervention group members passed this step for a maximum of seven hours. The intensity of pain recorded at the fourth and fifth hours of the active phase of the first step of travail in the mothers of the intervention group was significantly lower (p<0/05) and in general, the average severity of pain was lower in the intervention group (p<0/05).
ConclusionUsing sound and image of Quranic verses significantly reduces the duration and severity of labor pain in a way that it can calm mothers down during childbirth.
