Background & Aim: Birth Satisfaction is a woman's evaluation of her childbirth experience that be influenced by perceived stress. The aim of this study was to determine the rate of birth satisfaction and its relationship with perceived stress in pregnant women Admitted in Hospital Shahrekord, 2022
Material & Method: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on 200 pregnant women with inclusion criteria and were hospitalized in Hajar Shahrekord's Hospital. Data collection tools were demographic and obstetric characteristics form, Cohen's Perceived Stress Scale and the Birth Satisfaction Scale-Revised Indicator (BSS-RI). At first, the participants were selected as convenience and entered the study after obtaining a written informed consent; then, the midwifery-demographic characteristics form and perceived stress in labor was completed through interviews and also by referring to the client's file. In the next step, the Birth Satisfaction Scale-Revised Indicator was completed by the client 12 to 24 hours after vaginal delivery and in the emergency cesarean section until discharge. The data was analyzed using SPSS version 16 software and statistical regression test. The significance level was considered P<0.05.
Results: According to the results, the mean score of birth satisfaction and perceived stress were (6.80±2.08) and (17.20±4.35) respectively; Also, the average score of two dimensions of Birth Satisfaction Scale, namely emotional pressure experienced during pregnancy and quality of care, were 4.1±8.84 and 2.1±72.33, respectively; In addition, no statistically significant relationship was observed between perceived stress (P=0.526) and demographic and obstetric characteristics (P<.05) with birth satisfaction.
Conclusion: Paying attention to the two dimensions of birth satisfaction tool and trying to increase their average score can have a positive effect on increasing overall satisfaction with childbirth. One of the ways to achieve this goal is to hold related workshops such as communication skills, stress management and clinical workshops related to the field for midwifery personnel and health care providers of pregnant mothers
