Preeclampsia is the first target to reduce maternal mortality because screening and prevention can be done. This research aims to analyze the risk factors for the incidence of preeclampsia. This research design is case control using primary data via google form. The research subjects were mothers who had given birth at Dupak Public Health Center Surabaya. Sampling was based on total sampling and simple random sampling technique that met the inclusion and exclusion criterias, each group consisted of 75 peoples. The analysis used was logistic regression and chi square. The results showed multiple pregnancies (AOR 3.89; 95% CI 0.714-21.186), family history of preeclampsia (AOR 5.19; 95% CI 1.287-20.959), previous history of preeclampsia (AOR 7.56; 95% CI 1.999-28.601), obesity (AOR 5.05; 95% CI 1.651-15.470) and chronic hypertension (AOR 5.12; 95% CI 1.294-20.312). The conclusion of this research is the previous history of preeclampsia is the strong risk factors of preeclampsia.

To face menarche, young women need mental and physical preparation. There are several factors that influence the preparation for menarche, one of which is information on reproductive health. The level of reproductive health information will affect the preparation and behavior of young women in facing their first monthly cycle. This research was conducted so as not to cause adverse effects on young women who are facing menarche. This review aims to show the relationship between the level of information about reproductive health with menarche readiness in adolescent girls aged 10-14 years. This study is an in-depth observational study with a cross-sectional examination plan. The number of research subjects was 104 young women aged 10-14 years who had experienced menarche at SDN Mandesan 02 and SMPN 1 Selopuro. The information collected has been tested with the factual Fisher Exact Test. The results showed that almost all respondents (97.1%) had good information. most respondents (96.9%) who are ready to face menarche have good information and all respondents (100%) who are not ready to face menarche have good information and all respondents (100%) who are not ready to face menarche have good information about reproduction health. Conclusion: there is no relationship between the level of knowledge about the welfare of conception with menarche preparation in early adolescence.</p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Era Fazira, Reny I’tishom, Rize Budi Amalia https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/embrio/article/view/4192 The Effectiveness of Prenatal Yoga in Overcoming Labor Pain 2022-02-24T13:09:12+07:00 Nur Zuwariyah nurzuwariyah@unusa.ac.id Uliyatul Laili uliyatul.laili@unusa.ac.id <p>Mothers giving birth will feel pain in the opening phase and decrease due to uterine contractions.

Massage can provide comfort to the mother after the delivery process. This study used a quasi-experimental method with a one-group pre-and post-test design. Measurements were carried out before and after the research intervention. Measurements were made using an observation sheet (breast milk production) and then given an intervention (oxytocin massage) followed by an evaluation on day 3 using an observation sheet (breast milk production). The results of this evaluation were compared with the results of measurements before the intervention was given. The characteristics of the most oxytocin massage respondents, based on age were 20-35 years, 24 respondents (80%), multiparity parity 21 respondents (70%), and normal upper arm circumference 23.5 – 26.5 cm 15 respondents (50%). The breast milk production before the oxytocin massage was carried out with the most breast milk not lagging as many as 25 respondents (83.3%), after the oxytocin massage the milk flow was smooth as many as 28 respondents (93.3%).

This assessment is necessary to determine asphyxia in newborns. The APGAR score is influenced by many factors, one of which is the duration of labor. For the longest time it takes for labor to be in the first stage. Maternal parity also determines the duration of the first stage. Monitoring of mothers in labor begins during the active phase of the first stage. The purpose of this study in general was to determine the effect of the first stage of the active multipara phase on the APGAR score. This research method is an observational posttest only control group design with a cross-sectional approach and uses a purposive sampling technique to determine 60 samples. Data analysis using ANOVA test. The results of this study showed a linear relationship between the first stage of the active phase and the APGAR score indicated by the p-value of 0.0001.

This action as a life saver, early initiation of breastfeeding can also save 22 percent of babies who die before the age of one month. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of early initiation of breastfeeding on changes in body temperature in newborns. The design of this study used a quasi-experimental approach with pretest and posttest approaches. The sampling method is by accidental sampling. Data were collected by means of observation, and analyzed using a computerized Wilcoxon test with a significance level of P-Sign &lt;0.05. The results showed that almost 90% of newborns before early initiation of breastfeeding experienced a decrease in body temperature and after early initiation of breastfeeding only 10% experienced low body temperature. From the results of statistical testing, the results obtained with Z = -4.243 and P value = 0.000. The conclusion of this study is that there is an effect of early initiation of breastfeeding on changes in body temperature of newborns at Ngimbang Lamongan Hospital in 2021.

About 30% of hypertension is caused by chronic hypertension and 70% is caused by gestasional pre-eclampsia hypertension. Blood pressure is a hemodynamic parameter that is simple and easy to measure. Blood pressure describes a person’s hemodynamic situation. Studies show that the sympathetic nervous system plays an important role in the pathogenesis of hypertension, namely an increase in the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system causes vasoconstriction and arterial dilatation to maintain blood pressure. The study aimed to determine the levels of nitric oxide and sympathetic nerve hyperactivity. This study used a prospective cohort study design. To assess the hyperactivity of the sympathetic nerves, a Cold Pressor Test was performed and the levels of Nitric Oxide were examined for blood serum samples using the Elisa Kit. Where the measurement is carried out once, namely during the second trimester of pregnancy, while the blood pressure of pregnant women is measured once a week and followed up to 24 weeks of gestation. The number of samples was 40 pregnant women who were selected by consecutive sampling. Data collection was carried out according to data collection procedures. The data obtained in a prospective cohort were used statistical analysis of the Mann Whitney test to see the relationship or correlation between Sympathetic Nerve Hyperactivity and Nitric Oxide Levels and Blood Pressure Dynamics. The results showed that the mother was hyperreactor (12.44 ± 5.811) and mother was normoreactor (10.46 ± 3.215). Bivariate analysis showed that there was no significant difference between sympathetic nerve hyperactivity and nitric oxide levels (p=0.172). It was concluded that sympathetic nerve activity did not have a significant relationship with the increase in nitric oxide levels<em>.</em></p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Meli Doloksaribu https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/embrio/article/view/4452 Prenatal Massage to Reduce Psychological Stress in Teenage Mothers and Its Implications for Stunting Prevention 2022-03-15T02:22:15+07:00 Tri Purwanti firabiku@gmail.com Fera Yuli Setiyaningsih fera.yuli@gmail.com <p>Teenage pregnancy is a global problem with a very high number, where the risk of giving birth to stunting children is 2.74 times compared to woman who gives birth at reproductive age.

The incidence of candidiasis in pregnant women increased by 40%. Candidiasis is caused by a Candida yeast infection such as Candida albicans. Red spinach (Amaranthus tricolor L.) is a plant that has antifungal effects because it contains alkaloids, tannins, saponins, and flavonoids. The research was conducted in a laboratory experimental manner using the disc diffusion method to determine the effectiveness of red spinach (Amaranthus tricolor L.) as an antifungal against Candida albicans in vitro. Analysis of the data used is Anova One Way and Pearson correlation. Based on the results of the study, the highest inhibition zone was at a concentration of 100%, namely 16.4 mm, this means that red spinach (Amaranthus tricolor L.) has strong antifungal power to inhibit the growth of Candida albicans.
