Background: Introduction: Since birth, a stressful experience, self-efficacy and self-confidence play an important role in mother's perception of delivery. Today, yoga is used to control anxiety and increase the sense of self-efficacy in different areas. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of yoga on the self-efficacy of primiparous women.
Methods: This randomized clinical trial was conducted in 2017 on 60 primiparous women aged 18-40 and referred to Zahedan health centers. The participants were randomly assigned to two groups of intervention and control. During the weeks 26-27 of pregnancy, 30 mothers of the intervention group, received 12-15 sessions of Yoga exercises and 30 mothers of control group received normal care. Data were collected using a demographic an self-efficacy questionnaires. The pre-test was completed at week 26 and post-test at weeks 34-36 with two weeks in between; the data was analyzed using paired t-test Mann-Whitney and chi-square tests, linear regression tests and SPSS 16.
Results: The mean of self-efficacy score before intervention in the experimental and control group was (78.43 ± 24.7) and (62.69 ± 21.74) and after the intervention (124.45 ± 13.26) and (16.33±92.75) respectively, and (P=0001).
Conclusions: After the intervention, the mean of self-efficacy increased. It seems that Yoga has been used to increase self-efficacy of primiparous women in the second and third trimesters.
