Objective: To discuss and analyze the clinical research of aromatherapy combined with acupoint massage on
promoting natural childbirth of primipara. Methods: A total of 100 primiparas who gave birth in the obstetrics department of our hospital from May 2022 to May 2023 were recruited and divided into the experiment group (n = 50) and the reference group (n = 50). The experiment group received a nursing that includes aromatherapy and acupoint massage, and the reference group received routine midwifery nursing. Bad mood, pain degree, sleep quality, labor time, and satisfaction were compared between the two groups. Results: Before nursing, there was no statistically significant difference in all the observation indicators between the two groups (P > 0.05). After nursing, the anxiety, depression, and other negative emotions, pain degrees, sleep quality, and satisfaction degree of the experiment group were significantly better than those in the reference group (P < 0.05). The duration of labor in the experiment group was shorter than that of the reference group (P<0.05). Conclusion: Aromatherapy combined with acupoint massage can promote the natural delivery of primipara, and it is worthy of wide application and promotion.
