This study uses a literature review using the PRISMA checklist protocol and evaluation. Search articles using two databases, namely PubMed and Scholar. The oxytocin massage intervention was effective for postpartum maternal patients on the first to third day who had not expelled colostrum or had impaired breast milk production. Oxytocin massage is effective if done twice a day with a duration of 3-5 minutes or for approximately 2-3 minutes with 2-3 massages.
