Abstract

One of the causes of maternal mortality and morbidity is pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH). One of many hypertension management in pregnancy with non-pharmacological is hydrotherapy, which is soaking the feet using warm water for 20 minutes. This study aims to determine the differences in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in the hydrotherapy group with a temperature of 40o - 43 o compared to temperatures of 37 o - 39 o. The study using Quasi-Experimental non-randomized pre-test and post-test with control design on 22 hypertensive pregnant women using purposive sampling technique. Research instruments included observation sheets, sphygmomanometer, stethoscope, and digital water thermometer. Univariate and bivariate data analysis using the Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests. This study showed difference of systolic blood pressure p value 0,000 and difference of diastolic p value 0,013 (p <0,05), therefore there were differences in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in the hydrotherapy group with a temperature of 40 o - 43 o compared to 37 o - 39 o. Hydrotherapy using temperature of 40 o - 43 o is better to use than temperature of 37 o - 39 o. Midwives can use hydrotherapy as an early treatment alternative for hypertensive pregnant women
