Abstract: 

Background: The significant increase in Cesarean delivery around the world turns this issue to a major health concern. In Iran, Cesarean rate is 3 to 4 times higher than what is recommended by WHO. Determining knowledge and attitude of people is the first step in developing and enacting educational programs for health promotion.
Purpose: This descriptive study was performed to determine knowledge and attitude of pregnant women referring to Dezful health centers regarding mode of delivery in 2008.
Methods: 120 women selected via quota sampling method participated in the study. A questionnaire completed by interviewing regarding demographic characteristics, knowledge about modes of delivery and attitude toward normal vaginal delivery (NVD) was used for data collection. Content and test-retest methods were used for its validity and reliability.
Results: Most subjects (54.2%) had moderate knowledge regarding mode of delivery. Their attitude (56.7%) toward NVD was neutral.
Conclusion: Since the majority of cases had moderate knowledge about modes of delivery and neutral attitude toward NVD, holding prenatal educational classes in this regard and supervision as well as follow-up for them are recommended.
