The population in this study were all primigravida maternal mothers in the Puskesmasn Kampung Baru with a sample of 15 respondents selected by consecutive sampling. The statistical test used was the Wilcoxon Rant Test. The results of this study were the mean value before a warm compress performed 7.6, and the mean value after a warm compress was 5.8, with a significance value of 0.001.
