Abstract: Pregnancy and delivery of the baby are normal physiological processes; they have also been considered emergency conditions because, at any time, they can terminate into a severe hazard. To prevent emergencies, Ayurveda mentioned month-wise management, i.e., Garbhini Parichariya; this was also incorporated with the management of pregnant women until delivery. The ninth-month regimen especially focuses on facilitating the way of delivery. Acharya Charaka prescribed Anuvasana Basti and Yonipichu with Madhura oushadha Siddha taila during the ninth-month regimen for achieving at last goal of Sukhaprasava. In the present study, a 31-year-old primigravida patient was selected, she was given Matrabasti and Yonipichu with Tila taila after 35th weeks of gestation till delivery, and she was assessed during labour to document the duration of different stages of labour through Partogram and Bishop’s score. The patient delivered a live healthy female child at the gestation age of 40 weeks four days. The condition of the newborn was assessed by APGAR score and birth weight. Tila taila was used for the study as Tila (sesame) is considered under madhura drugs as it has madhura rasa and madhura vipaka; it is readily available and extensively consumed. Hence, the current study established its effect on the labour process.
