The Length of the first and second stage was recorded by vaginal exam and the data was analyzed by f SPSS- 16, using Chi-Square and independent t- test.


  Results: the mean of active phase in intervention group (2:15±1:19 hour) compared to control group (4:10±1:59 hour) was decreased (p=0.001). The length of second stage in intervention group (00:45 ± oo: 25 minute) in comparison with control group (1:04 ± 00:39 hour) was reduced (p=0.008).
