Labour is vastly described in Ayurveda as Prasava and its being practised since centuries. Application of the Ayurvedic concept of labour and its practices is the need of hour in prevention of un toward complications of labour.

Group A patients were administered Krishnavacha Lepa mixed with Eranda Taila Lepa and in Group B, Vaasamoola Lepa was applied after attaining the true labour pain in the first stage of labour with proper operative procedures.
