Abstract

The postpartum period is a sensitive time in which various traditional practices are applied in order to protect the health of the mother and the baby. Furthermore, the traditional postpartum care is believed to be very beneficial, but in reality, the practice can be dangerous for both the mother and baby. It is necessary to modify the traditional treatments in such a way that the mother and the baby are not endangered. This study aims to examine the effectiveness of modification of traditional Timorese Postpartum care during the puerperium. A quantitative research method with pre-experimental techniques using the intact group comparison design was used. The population used were families with postpartum mothers and the sample was determined by a purposive sampling technique. The results were from 8 families that carried out all stages of this modification, having good health status and more breastmilk production than those who did not. A modification of traditional Timorese childbirth practices gives a good effect on the health status of puerperal women. The implication of this research was to reduce the risk of postpartum mothers receiving Timorese traditional postpartum care.
