A descriptive study was conducted to examine the factors influencing episiotomy wound healing among 60 postnatal women in Government Taluk Hospital, Kundapura. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the sample. Demographic proforma of postnatal women and an observational check list on episiotomy wound healing was used to collect the data. Age of the women, no of vaginal examination done during labour, head circumference of the newborn, Hb level before delivery and Hb level after delivery had no effect on the episiotomy wound healing score. The study concludes that episiotomy wound healing is influenced by parity, frequency of self perineal care, length of episiotomy wound and no of episiotomy sutures present.
