Partograh is a pictorial representation used during the birthing process for the Shepherding Mother. It is mainly used to prevent prolonged and obstructed labour. Globally, maternal morbidity and mortality affected 13.6 million mothers. Most of these deaths occurred in countries with limited resources. Because midwives can improve outcomes and predict the course of labor using a partograph during labor. this can help the mother and baby to heal and reduce the baby's risk factor. Method: A study conducted on a partograph among nurses at Ashwin Hospital using a pre-experimental one-group pre-test post-test design was adopted. Non-probability convenience sampling was used to select 40 samples. Self-administered questionnaires were used to assess knowledge on the partograph. Direct observations based on control were made to all midwife participants to determine the actual practical use of the partograph. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical methods and interpretations were made based on the objectives of the study. Result: In this study, 22 (55%) of the 40 study participants used the partograph. After gaining knowledge and training, there were positive predictors of partograph use. The average knowledge score in the pretest was 6.2 and in the posttest was 12.1, and the obtained use of the partograph in the pretest was 6 and in the posttest was 12.5. Conclusion: Educational measures show that during childbirth it is important to significantly improve knowledge about the use of the paratograph and a realistic review of the rendering parotograph among nurses, which will prevent complications for both mother and child.
