Inadequate milk production in the first days after delivery is caused by a lack of stimulation of the hormone prolactin and the hormone oxytocin. This is in accordance with research conducted by Pace (2001) which shows that decreased milk production is caused by decreased stimulation of the hormones prolactin and oxytocin. Efforts that can be made to stimulate an increase in the hormone prolactin and oxytocin include initiating early breastfeeding, expressing breast milk and doing oxytocin massage effective and efficient in increasing milk production (Roesli & Yolmi, 2009). Palu City Health Department data’s in 2017 and 2018 show that the average exclusive breastfeeding coverage in 11 districts in Central Sulawesi Province is <50% and specifically Palu City exclusive breastfeeding coverage is only 49.6% in 2017 and then dropped to 49, 3% in 2018. Oxytocin massage training has never been conducted at the Tawaeli Community Health Center, especially for postpartum mothers companion such as Posyandu Cadres, Husbands or Families. The method used in community service activities is the method of discussions, simulations and demonstrations using leaflet and audio visual media. The number of puerperal mothers who attended the training were 25 people. The results of training activities for postpartum mothers in the Kayumalue Ngapa village obtained that the results of knowledge analysis showed that overall there was an increase in knowledge of 25 participants after attending the training, with an average increase of 13. The p-value 0,000 results meant that statistically there was an influence which is significant towards increasing the knowledge of postpartum maternal assistants after attending oxytocin massage training. It was concluded that there was a significant increase in knowledge between before and after training on oxytocin massage in stimulating milk production. It is recommended that health workers need to be consistent and continuous in giving training to the companion of the postpartum mother (husband, family or cadre) in order to be able to assist the process of behavior change for the postpartum mother to provide exclusive breastfeeding and conduct care during the postpartum period.
