Results: Most of the women (69.8%) had good level of satisfaction with provided prenatal care and 21.9% were satisfied at the level of excellence. The women were more satisfied with accessibility, received information, communication, quality of services. There was a statistically significant positive association between education levels, economical status, and health situation during pregnancy and women’s satisfaction with prenatal care services (P<0.05).Women with high education levels, good economical status and optimum health situation during pregnancy were more satisfied. There were statistically significant association between the waiting time for prenatal care visits and the number of prenatal visits and women’s satisfaction with prenatal care services (P<0.05). Women’s satisfactions with the services were increased with the frequency of prenatal care visits, but their satisfactions were decreased as the waiting time was prolonged.
