Abstract

Breastfeeding is an activity to of exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months without additional food or other drinks.


Breastfeeding has a very good impact on the mother, but if breastfeeding is not adequate it will result in swelling of the
breasts, when breast swelling occurs, the mother will feel pain in the breast area. Therefore, the treatment that can be
used to reduce breast pain is cabbage leaf compresses where the content contained in cabbage leaves can help widen
the capillaries, if the capillaries are dilated, it can make it easier for blood to flow in and out, thus allowing the body to
absorb blocked fluids in the breast. The aim of this study is to know and analyze the level of pain in post partum mother
breast swelling before and after being given cabbage leaf compress therapy. This study uses a qualitative research
design, using 2 samples of postpartum mothers who experience breast swelling pain with data collection techniques
through interviews, observation and documentation. The results showed that cabbage leaf compresses were effective in
reducing breast swelling pain as evidenced by the results of decreasing the pain scale of breast swelling in the first
respondent before therapy, namely a scale of 6 (moderate pain) to a scale of 1 (mild pain) then in the second
respondent before treatment the pain was felt, namely a scale of 5 (moderate pain) to 0 (no pain). The conclusion of
this study is that cabbage leaf compresses are proven to be effective in reducing the pain scale of breast swelling in
postpartum mothers, as evidenced by the reduction in the pain scale of breast swelling in both respondents.
