Abstract : Rhythmic breathing is one non-pharmacological method women are using to cope with labor pains. A quasi-experimental trial was utilized to compare the effect of cleansing vs. light breathing on labor pains. The study was conducted on a labor ward of a privet hospital with uniform active labor management. Fifty participants enrolled in this study according to certain inclusion criteria. Labor pains are assessed by a visual analog scale. There was a significant difference between both the cleansing breathing group and the light breathing group in relation to mean VAS after using the rhythmic breathing were P = .013 to the favor of the cleansing breathing. From the study results, it can be concluded that labor pains can be greatly minimized with any of the rhythmic breathing management techniques with many references to the cleansing breathing as being more effective than light breathing in reducing labor pains among primiparous women
