One of the efforts that can be done to reduce the risk of mother in labor to the incidence of prolonged labor is by providing adequate nutrition as energy such as dates. The sugar content in dates is different from the sugar in other fruits such as sugar cane. Besides, the sugar in dates does not require a long process to be absorbed directly by the body. The purpose of this research was to prove the effect of giving sukkari dates to mothers in labor with the labor duration at the Hanifa Clinic in Raman Utara Sub-District East Lampung Regency in 2021.
