Abstract: 

Background: Anxiety is the most common emotional response in women during delivery, which can be accompanied with adverse effects on fetus and mother.
Objectives: This study was conducted to compare the effects of aromatherapy with rose oil and warm foot bath on anxiety in the active phase of labor in nulliparous women in Tehran, Iran.
Patients and Methods: This clinical trial study was performed after obtaining informed written consent on 120 primigravida women randomly assigned into three groups. The experimental group 1 received a 10-minute inhalation and footbath with oil rose. The experimental group 2 received a 10-minute warm water footbath. Both interventions were applied at the onset of active and transitional phases. Control group, received routine care in labor. Anxiety was assessed using visual analogous scale (VASA) at onset of active and transitional phases before and after the intervention. Statistical comparison was performed using SPSS software version 16 and P<0.05 was considered significant.
Results: Anxiety scores in the intervention groups in active phase after intervention were significantly lower than the control group (P<0.001). Anxiety scores before and after intervention in intervention groups in transitional phase was significantly lower than the control group (P<0.001).
Conclusions: Using aromatherapy and footbath reduces anxiety in active phase in nulliparous women.
