Abstract

During the third trimester of pregnancy, it is estimated that over 75% of women experience sleep difficulties. Preterm labour, low birth weight, blood pressure issues, decreased glucose tolerance, and depression during and after pregnancy are all direct outcomes that can be directly attributed to sleeping conditions that are of poor quality. This study examines the impact of practising prenatal yoga on the quality of sleep experienced by Primigravida women in the third trimester of pregnancy. Methods: This study includes a control group design and is a quasi-experimental study. This research was carried out in Posyandu Mawar 19 in Batam City. The samples for this study consisted of sixty pregnant women between the ages of 28 and 32 weeks along in their pregnancies. These women were split into two groups: thirty individuals were assigned to the intervention group, which received prenatal yoga four times every two weeks, and thirty individuals were assigned to the control group, which consisted of pregnant women who went to their regular antenatal check-up appointments as they normally would. The results of this study were analyzed using the purposive sampling technique. The data was analyzed using the Wilcoxon test (p < 0.05). The statistical test findings indicate that the control group (p-value 0.001 <0.05) and intervention (p-value 0.001 <0.05) both exhibited a significant difference. The conclusion can be drawn from this is that there is a substantial change in sleep quality before and after the intervention. Prenatal yoga has the potential to enhance the quality of sleep experienced by Primigravida women who are in their third trimester of pregnancy.
