Abstract: 

Background and aim: Midwives always encounter the legal and religious orders in their area of work. Regarding progressions made in midwifery, and because of new indications in therapeutic abortion, contraception methods and new infertility managements, many religious commandments are explained from juriseonsults. Midwives are advised to note these legal- religious commandments. The aim of this study was to determine knowledge of midwives about midwifery legal and religious commandments in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiary province.
Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study, 151 midwives employed in health centers of the province, selected by simple sampling. Data were collected by questionnaires that included demographic characteristics and legal and religious questions. Data were analyzed using statistical tests include (t and Chi-square tests).
Results: Mean age of the individuals studied was 26.9
±7.8 years. Level of education in 66.2% of records was associate degree. Enough knowledge about total legal and religious commandments was seen in only 12.7% of records. Enough knowledge to legal commandments was seen in 15.3% and to religious commandments in 11.3%. 78.1% told that training during education is not enough for their present needs. 88.1% were inclined to train. There was no significant relation between knowledge and age or education of records.
Conclusion: Because of low knowledge, need and inclination to train about legal and religious commandments, educational program to train midwives is most recommended. Also revision in matters that are trained to midwifery students is necessary.
