Pregnancy induced hypertension is one of the most important and common medical disorder during pregnancy and up to 10-13% of pregnancies are complicated by hypertension, increasing mortality and morbidity of both mother and baby. Pharmacological management though which is effective have their own side effect when it is used long term. So there is an urgent need for new and different methods of treating hypertension during pregnancy; in particular, non-pharmacological measure. There are many non-pharmacological measures among those music therapy and pranayama are cost effective and feasible interventions for practice. The main aim of the present study was to assess the effectiveness of music therapy and tranquilizing pranayama on physiological parameters among antenatal mothers with pregnancy induced hypertension. A pre experimental study with two group pre &posttest design was used. Among all antenatal mothers, 20 (10 for music therapy, 10 for tranquilizing pranayama) antenatal mothers with PIH were selected by using convenient sampling technique at Rajiv Gandhi Women and Children Hospital, Pondicherry. Demographic variables and physiological parameters were assessed in pretest. Administered music therapy to group I and tranquilizing pranayama to group II for four weeks, daily three times for 20 minutes. The results reveals that both intervention are effective and had positive influence on physiological parameters. While comparing music therapy with tranquilizing pranayama, tranquilizing pranayama shows more effectiveness on physiological parameters.
