Abstract

Striae gravidarum are a form of scaring on the skin with an off colour hue. Striae gravidarum found during pregnancy may be indicative of poor skin elasticity. Patients with striae gravidarum are at higher risk for lacerations at the time of vaginal delivery than patients who do not have abdominal stretch marks. A observational study was undertaken to find out the association of striae gravidarum score with perineal trauma among primi-para mothers. The conceptual framework adopted for this study was based on the Erikson, Tomlin, Mary Ann’s model of Adaptive Potential Assessment Model. In this study consecutive sampling technique was used to select 372 primi mothers who are meeting sampling criteria. Atwal numerical scale was used to assess the total striae gravidarum score and Observation for perineal trauma among primi-para mothers was done in labour room of District Headquarter Hospital, Khurda. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze data in the study. Chi-square test was performed to find out the association between total striae gravidarum score with perineal trauma. The findings of the study revealed that total striae gravidarum was significantly associated with episiotomy given or not given. The study was come to an end that risk for perineal trauma during delivery is associated with total striae gravidarum score.
