Abstract: 

A healthy and successful society is formed by healthy and knowledgeable mothers. How mothers deliver babies plays a great role on their own health. Women should be free to choose knowingly during their pregnancy and child delivery. Doctors are to help women, not to control them or decide on their behalves. According to the general principles of medical ethics, in order to preserve and respect the “right to decide” of patients capable of making their own decisions, medical teams must provide their patients with all their required information and complete, unbiased and reliable facts about their condition so they can make their own decisions with freedom and awareness. Medical teams must also bear in mind the basic principle of “Assessment of risks and benefits” in their medications and prescriptions, and they must try to find the most optimized condition by fine-tuning the two parameters, in order to treat the needs of their patients. Cesarean is a method of child delivery that, in recent years, has attracted many women, without having any knowledge of how it is done or what the consequences are. This paper tends to study social elements that have tempted women into Cesarean during recent years. The research methodology is a survey. The sample volume came to 200 women, using Cochran Formula. The statistical population included 3-month pregnant women going to hospitals of district1 in Tehran. The tools of data gathering were questionnaires firs, demographic characteristic of the samples (age, education, marital, status) were described and frequency and percentage charts were drawn. Finally, descriptive statistical charts were used to describe variably like Cesareans encouraged by physicians, body fitness and fear of natural delivery, modeling and fading of motherhood duties, advantages of natural delivery and disadvantages of Cesarean.
