Materials and Method: The sample of the study consisted of 526 postpartum mothers in two hospitals in a province of Turkey and who accepted to participate in the study. Data were collected using face-to-face interview method by Personal Information Form and Postpartum Comfort Scale (PCS). Results: In this study, it was detemined that the mean score of the mothers from PCS was 122.88±15.02, 46.27±7.66 in physical comfort, 43.48±5.10 in psychospritual comfort and 33.09±6.59 in sociocultural comfort, and the mothers’ comfort was found to be at moderate level. Physical, psychospiritual, sociocultural comfort and total mean scores of the mothers who planned their pregnancy, who described health professionals’ behaviors as quite gentle, who had education during hospitalization, who were satisfied with the care, who expressed their general health condition as very good and who felt relieved thanks to postpartum care were significantly higher than the other groups (p<0.05). Conclusion: It was determined that planning of pregnancy, perception of birth, general health status, behaviors of health professionals, having education during hospitalization and satisfaction with the care affected the mothers’ comfort levels. Mothers should be informed and supported during the prenatal, delivery and postpartum periods, delivery services should be arranged in a way to increase comfort and health professionals should behave gently to mothers and their families.
Amaç: Araştırma, annelerin doğum sonu konfor düzeyleri ve etkileyen faktörlerin belirlenmesi amacıyla tanımlayıcı olarak yapılmıştır. Gereç ve Yöntem: Araştırmanın örneklemini, Türkiye’de bir il merkezindeki iki hastanede doğum sonu dönemde bulunan ve araştırmaya katılmayı kabul eden 526 anne oluşturmuştur. Araştırmanın verileri, Kişisel Bilgi Formu ve Doğum Sonu Konfor Ölçeği (DSKÖ) kullanılarak yüz yüze görüşme yöntemiyle toplanmıştır. Bulgular: Araştırmada, annelerin DSKÖ’den aldıkları puan ortalamasının 122.88±15.02, fiziksel konforda 46.27±7.66, psikospritüel konforda 43.48±5.10, sosyokültürel konforda 33.09±6.59 olduğu saptanmış olup, annelerin konforlarının orta düzeyde olduğu belirlenmiştir. İsteyerek gebe kalan, sağlık personelinin davranış şeklini oldukça nazik olarak nitelendiren, hastanede yatış süresince eğitim alan, verilen bakımdan memnun olan, genel sağlık durumunu çok iyi olarak ifade eden ve verilen bakım ile doğum sonu rahatladığını ifade eden annelerin fiziksel, psikospritüel, sosyokültürel konfor ve toplam ölçek puan ortalamalarının diğer gruplara göre anlamlı şekilde daha yüksek olduğu bulunmuştur (p<0.05). Sonuç: Gebeliği isteme durumu, doğumu algılama şekli, genel sağlık durumu, sağlık personelinin davranış şekli, hastanede yatış süreci içerisinde eğitim alma ve verilen bakımdan memnun olma durumunun annelerin konfor düzeyini etkilediği belirlenmiştir. Annelerin doğum öncesi, doğum ve doğum sonrası dönemde bilgilendirilerek desteklenmesi, doğum servislerinin konforu artıracak şekilde düzenlenmesi ve sağlık personelinin annelere ve ailelerine nazik yaklaşımlar sergilemesi önerilebilir.
