Background & Aim: Cesarean section is the most common operation in women's life and Due to the importance of mother's experiences of childbirth, the purpose of this qualitative study is to explain the stress factors according to the experience of mothers during this surgery.
Materials & Methods: In this qualitative study that was conducted using conventional content analysis method, 8 cesarean section nulliparity women were randomly selected in Shahid Akbarabadi hospital, Tehran. Then, in addition to observation and library study, deep and semi-structured interviews were arranged for the participants based on the stressors and anxieties faced during cesarean section in operating room and the data were analyzed by using Graneheim & Lundman method.
Results: After the analysis, 8 sub- themes and 3 themes were obtained. The three themes included mothers' lack of knowledge, staff's communication problems, and mother's psychological needs which are considered to be the main stress-causing factors in cesarean section pregnant mothers.
Conclusion: The results showed that many of the needs of primiparous mothers who come to the operating room for caesarean section are not answered.
