This study was to examine the effects of a spouse's hand massage on anxiety, the spouse support and the perception on delivery experience of a painless childbirth primipara.

The data was collected from June 1 to August 15, 2013 and analyzed by χ2-test, Fisher's exact test, and t-test, using SPSS PC+ 21.0 for Windows.
Results
Anxiety of primipara during active labor period (t=-2.42, p=.020) and during transition period (t=-3.77, p<.001) in experimental group were significantly decreased than in control group. The spouse support (t=2.34, p=.024) and the perception on delivery experience (t=3.33, p=.002) in experimental group was significantly higher than in control group.
