Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of maternal parity
with the incidence of prolonged labor in the District General Hospital Prof. Dr.
Margono Soekarjo Purwokerto in 2013.
This research method is analytic correlation with case control approach. This
study uses secondary data derived from medical records of patients at the General
Hospital of Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo Purwokerto. Sampling using quota
sampling number 50 case samples and 50 control samples. Analysis of the data
used were univariate ie only see the picture of the distribution of variable
frequency and bivariate analysis using chi square.
The results of this study is no relationship between maternal parity with the
incidence of prolonged labor. (Ρvalue = 0.0001 <0.05). In get the value of OR =
24.438, meaning that parity primiparous and grandemultipara can cause the
incidence of prolonged labor 24.438 times higher than parity multiparas.
The conclusion of this research that there is a relationship between parity with the
incidence of prolonged labor in hospitals Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo 2013
