Breast crawl has been described as an instinctive postpartum behavior for full-term children after vaginal birth. The present aim was to assess the effectiveness of breast crawl on infant delivery among postnatal mothers who underwent cesarean delivery vs spontaneous vaginal delivery at Saveetha Medical College and Hospital. A quantitative approach with comparative research design was adopted for the present study. A total of 60samples among which in spontaneous vaginal delivery (n=30) and cesarean delivery (n=30) were selected by using a non-probability convenient sampling technique. A self-structured questionnaire method was used to collect the demographic data followed by that breast crawl was initiated between infant delivery by vaginal delivery and cesarean delivery among mothers. Among 60 samples, the mean score on the intensity level of pain among mothers delivery infant by vaginal delivery was 3.70±1.29 and the mean score on the intensity level of pain among mothers delivered infant by cesarean delivery was 6.13±1.25. The calculated student independent 't’ test was 7.412, which was found to be effectively significant. This clearly infers that breast crawl was found to be effective in minimizing the intensity level of pain among the mother's delivered infant by spontaneous vaginal delivery than the mother's delivered infant by cesarean delivery.
