Abstract

Introduction: The postpartum period signifies a transitional phase into parenthood, marked by the emergence of new roles and responsibilities, including alterations in sleep patterns and rest. Poor sleep quality in postpartum mothers can lead to various physical and psychological challenges. A potential preventive measure for this is the administration of lavender aromatherapy.


Objectives: This study aims to analyze the influence of lavender aromatherapy on improving the sleep quality of postpartum mothers.


Method: This is a quantitative analytical study using a quasi-experimental approach involving intervention and control groups. The population consists of postpartum mothers on days 3-7 in the Cikalong Public Health Center area. The intervention group receives lavender aromatherapy through a diffuser for 10 minutes daily for seven days, while the control group receives no intervention. Purposive sampling is used to select 19 participants in each group. The data are homogenous. Univariate analysis is conducted to determine respondent characteristics, while bivariate analysis is employed to investigate the impact of lavender aromatherapy on improving the sleep quality of postpartum mothers using an Independent Sample T-test.


Result: The findings reveal the mean score in the intervention group before aromatherapy (9.32) and in the control group (6.95). After aromatherapy, the mean score in the intervention group is (4.26) compared to the control group (8.21). Statistical analysis yields a p-value of 0.000 (p < 0.05), indicating a significant influence of lavender aromatherapy on improving the sleep quality of postpartum mothers.


Conclusion: There is a notable impact of lavender aromatherapy on enhancing the sleep quality of postpartum mothers.
