Abstract

This study aims to explore the role of husbands’ support in assisting their wives to overcome anxiety during puerperium. The study took place at Rumah Bulat (a traditional house especially designed for mothers in their puerperial period and their babies) in Putun Villange, Central Southern Timor, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. A qualitative approach was employed, participated by two married couples who had undergone or were undergoing postpartum period in Rumah Bulat. Descriptive analysis using thematic coding procedure suggests four types of husband support to their wives during puerperal period: instrumental support, psychosocial support, emotional support, and spiritual support. Each support was conveyed by each participant in different forms and had an impact in reducing postpartum maternal anxiety. The study’s result provides reference to the government and local communities regarding how to provide support for women in the puerperal period, which is still understudied.
