This study will look at the effect of acupuncture at LI4 and SP6 points on postpartum SC pain. The research design is a quasi experimental clinical non-equivalent pre-post test control group design. The total sample is 60 respondents consisting of the intervention and control groups. The instrument used was the PNRS pain scale by measuring the level of pain before and after the intervention was given. Bivariate analysis using Independent Sample t-Test. The results of the study stated that the average pain intensity score before acupuncture intervention using PNRS there was a decrease after acupuncture intervention at points LI4 and SP6 after acupuncture intervention at points LI4 and SP6 for 30 minutes, analysis p value 0.00 <0.05. Conclusion There is a significant effect after being given acupuncture intervention at points LI4 and SP6 on reducing pain intensity in postpartum SC.
