Objective:To investigate the effect of rapid rehabilitation care in post-caesarean section women.

Methods: A total of 198 cases of post-caesarean section mothers admitted to the obstetrics department of our hospital from January 1 to December 31, 2021 were randomly selected for investigation. The 198 post-caesarean deliveries were divided into a control group (n=89) and an observation group (n=89) according to the single and double inpatient beds. The control group was given conventional nursing interventions and the observation group was provided with rapid rehabilitation nursing interventions on top of conventional nursing. The two groups were compared on postnatal pain (Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NRS)), postoperative recovery, lactation, psychological status (Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS)) and self-care ability (Exercise of Self-care Agency Scale (ESCA)).

Results: Maternal pain scores were lower in the observation group than in the control group, and the time to recovery of the uterus, first defecation, first bowel movement, get out of bed and length of hospital stay were shorter compared to the control group (p < 0.05). Maternal lactation was better in the observation group than in the control group (P<0.05). Maternal NRS scores and EPDS scores were lower in the observation group than in the control group (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The application of rapid rehabilitation surgical care to women after caesarean section is more effective to reduce maternal pain, shorten maternal hospital stay, promote rapid maternal lactation and improve maternal psychological state, with good application effect.
