Aims: Wound complication after cesarean is a severe problem that may happen in spite of correct application of section technics. Inappropriate nutrition delays wound healing because of the decreasing of body’s saved energy that make wound vulnerable to infection. The aim of this paper was to detect the effect of early post cesarean feeding on wound healing.

Methods: This random clinical trial was performed in mothers, candidate for cesarean section in Ommolbanin hospital of Mashhad in 2009. 82 samples were selected by purposed sampling method and divided randomly into 2 equal groups of early- and normal feed. Data were collected by interview and observation forms, visual analog scale of pain and flatulence and REEDA scale. The level of flatulence and pain were measured in both groups 4, 12, 24, 36 and 48 hours after surgery by visual scale. Data was analyzed using Chi-square, Fisher’s exact, Kruskal Wallis, independent T and Mann-Whitney U tests by SPSS 11 software.

Results: The mean of REEDA score for cesarean wound healing was 0.39±1.1 in the early feed group and 0.63±1.1 in normal feed group that hadn’t a significant difference (p=0.257). The severity of flatulence, 24, 36 and 48 hours after surgery, and the pain intensity, 36 and 48 hours after cesarean section, had significant differences between 2 groups.

Conclusion: Although the early feeding is not effective on post cesarean wound healing, it decreases post cesarean pain and flatulence.
