A total of 30 mother with post sectio caesarea participated in this study. There was a significant difference between post-SC wound healing in the intervention group (46.7%) compare to the control group (6.7%) (0.000). The mean of wound healing in the proliferation phase in the intervention group was faster than the control group respectively (10.47; 7.93).
