Abstract: An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of aloevera gel application on episiotomy wound healing among mothers in early puerperal period of selected maternity hospitals, Jaipur, Rajasthan. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of aloevera gel application on episiotomy wound healing among mothers in early puerperal period. Materials and methods:A quasi experimental non- randomized control group design. The study was carried out in postnatal wards of NIMS hospital and Rajnish hospital, Jaipur. 60 early puerperal mothers (30 for experimental group and 30 for control group) selected for the study with the help of purposive sampling technique. The early puerperal mothers in experimental group received Aloe vera gel application and early puerperal mothers in control group received hospital routine care on episiotomy. The data collection was done with the help of demographic proforma, Universal pain assessment scale and redness, edema, ecchymosis, discharge and approximation scale (REEDA) which investigated the episiotomy healing before and three days after intervention in both experimental and control groups. The statistical method for the demographic variables was presented by using frequencies and percentages. Mean, Standard Deviation and Hedge’s G was used to evaluate the effect of aloe vera gel application on episiotomy wound healing of early puerperal mothers. The comparison of episiotomy wound healing in control group and experimental group was analyzed by paired ‘t’ test.Chi square test and P value was used to find out the association between the healing score of episiotomy wound and selected demographic variables of the samples.Results: The study result showed that in experimental group the mean post-test (4.9) was lower than mean pre-test (7.1) which showed that there was significant difference between the mean pre-test and mean post-test of experimental group whereasthe mean in experimental group (5.03) was lower than mean in control group (6.5). Calculated p value is .000045 (P<0.05) which showed the significant difference between control group episiotomy wound healing and experimental group episiotomy wound healing. Calculated Hedge’s G is 1.09 which showed that aloe vera gel application cause large effect on episiotomy wound healing, which can be observed easily.Conclusion: According to the results, using Aloe vera gel considerably increases the speed of episiotomy wound healing, which revealed that aloe vera gel application was one of the important and effectiveness intervention in improving episiotomy wound healing in early puerperal mothers.
