Abstract: 

Introduction: Childbirth is a natural or plysiological mechanism without any medial intervention, except for cases that mother or her child are at risk .In such case, mother and infant are helped by cesarean section.
Although, the goal of WHO for cesarean section is 15% by 2010, most countries report a prevalence rate of 50% or more.
Material & Methods: By a cross sectional study, 140 primipar women were selected A questionnaire was used for data to be collected. The questionnaire was designed upon behavioral intention model which included some variables such as knowledge, evaluation of results, normal subjective, attitude and intention of participants.
Results: The mean age of women was 23.2
±2.8 and most of them were at high school levels. The mean knowledge score of participants was 52.7 out of 100.Evaluation of results and attitude showed mean scores of 22 out of 30 and 50 out of 80 respectively.
More than 60% of selected women were doctors as the most important normal subjective and 70% or more of them intended to do a normal delivery.
Conclusion: This study showed a relation between knowledge, attitude and intention. Also, a relation between normal subjective and intention to comply was proved, more intervention is needed to decrease the prevalence of cesarean section. As the social and individual factors are effective variables for choosing the type of delivery, therefore, using the Behavioral Intention Model is suggested.
