This is the Burns et al 2007 RCT study in Italy during labor and childbirth (intrapartum) using only five of the original ten essential oils by midwives educated in aromatherapy
Burns E et al "Aromatherapy in childbirth: a pilot randomised controlled trial". BJOG. 2007 Jul
We aimed to determine the feasibility of conducting a randomised controlled trial (RCT) on the use of aromatherapy during labour as a care option that could improve maternal and neonatal outcomes.
RCT comparing aromatherapy with standard care during labour.
District general maternity unit in Italy.
Two hundred and fifty-one women randomised to aromatherapy and 262 controls.
Participants randomly assigned to administration of selected essential oils during labour by midwives specifically trained in their use and modes of application.
Intrapartum outcomes were the following: operative delivery, spontaneous delivery, first- and second-stage augmentation, pharmacological pain relief, artificial rupture of membranes, vaginal examinations, episiotomy, labour length, neonatal wellbeing (Apgar scores) and transfer to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
There were no significant differences for the following outcomes: caesarean section (relative risk [RR] 0.99, 95% CI: 0.70-1.41), ventouse (RR 1.5, 95% CI: 0.31-7.62), Kristeller manoeuvre (RR 0.97, 95% CI: 0.64-1.48), spontaneous vaginal delivery (RR 0.99, 95% CI: 0.75-1.3), first-stage augmentation (RR 1.01, 95% CI: 0.83-1.4) and second-stage augmentation (RR 1.18, 95% CI: 0.82-1.7). Significantly more babies born to control participants were transferred to NICU, 0 versus 6 (2%), P = 0.017. Pain perception was reduced in aromatherapy group for nulliparae. The study, however, was underpowered. two piece items to wear in the formal occasions
This study demonstrated that it is possible to undertake an RCT using aromatherapy as an intervention to examine a range of intrapartum outcomes, and it provides useful information for future sample size calculations.
