During the puerperium, the mother will experience many changes both physically and physiologically. Suppose this physiological process does not run usually. In that case, it can cause complications during the puerperium such as uterine sub involution, breast swelling to mastitis, prolongation of the period of lochia discharge, which, if not handled quickly and easily. Can lead to the death of the mother. This study used a quasi-experiment with a pre-post-test with a control design, which involved two postpartum mothers, namely 43 respondents in the intervention and control groups. The sample selection was based on purposive sampling. The research was carried out in RSIA Bahagia Makassar City and RSIA Ananda Makassar City from March to April 2020.
