Abstract

Introduction: The past three decades have witnessed a growing rate of cesarean worldwide without causing any improvement in rates of mortality of mother and child. The majority of these deliveries have been due to non-medical reasons. Considering the optional delivery type, this research was conducted on primiparous women in Bandar Abbas based on the health belief model. Materials and methods: The present descriptive/analytic research was conducted on 210 primiparous women visiting the healthcare centers of Bandar Abbas. Sampling was done based on randomized cluster sample selection method. The instrument was a questionnaire designed by the researcher based on the health belief model and perusal of the related literature. Data were collected by a questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS software version 16, chi-square and ANOVA tests. P value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results: From among the 210 participants, 73.8% of them were found to have had natural delivery, 26.2% had surgical delivery. The average age of mothers was 24.56 +/- 4.96 years (minimum 15 and maximum 43 years). Their average age of marriage was 21.23 +/- 5.16 years. No significant correlation was found between educational level, occupation, income and delivery type. A significant correlation on the other hand was observed between the constituents of health belief model and delivery types. Conclusion: It appears that enacting appropriate instructional plans by the medical staff can be effective in raising women's susceptibility and perceived severity of the consequences of cesarean. Moreover, it can help to raise women's trust in their ability for natural delivery and to cut down on unnecessary caesarians.
