Aims: Effective uterine involution is crucial for preventing excessive postpartum bleeding. One of the factors influencing the pace of uterine involution is early breastfeeding combined with correct breastfeeding techniques. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of early breastfeeding and proper breastfeeding techniques on the acceleration of uterine involution in first-time mothers during the physiological postpartum period.
Materials & Methods: This experimental study employed a post-test design with a control group. The intervention group received early breastfeeding and education on correct breastfeeding techniques, whereas the control group did not receive such interventions. A total of 100 participants were randomly selected for the study, and data collection involved the use of checklist sheets and questionnaires. Data analysis was performed using the Mann-Whitney test.
Findings: Regarding early breastfeeding, both the intervention and control groups primarily initiated breastfeeding immediately after delivery. However, regarding the correct breastfeeding technique, the intervention group predominantly demonstrated good breastfeeding techniques, while the control group mainly exhibited sufficient techniques. Concerning the acceleration of uterine involution, the intervention group was predominantly categorized as having fast involution, while the control group exhibited slower involution (p<0.05).
Conclusion: There is a significant difference in the acceleration of uterine involution between the two study groups.
