Background: Pain during labor among Jordanian women is a major issue to be addressed due to lack of extant research. Objective: Are there significant differences in pain levels during second stage of labor between primiparous and multiparous Jordanian parturients? Method: A descriptive study of 100 low-risk Jordanian women who delivered vaginally. Participants were recruited from the postpartum unit of a major military hospital in the city of Amman. Three instruments that included the Numeric Pain Scale, a structured interview and a demographic questionnaire were used. Results: In this study, the majority (65%) of Jordanian parturients did not receive pain relief. Eighty-one women reported pain levels of eight or higher on the Numeric Pain Scale. Mean pain level during the second stage of labor was 8.83 (SD=1.48). No statistically significant difference in pain levels was detected between primiparas and multiparas (t=-.73, p=.46). A significant difference in age was found between the two groups (t=7.9, p=.00). Conclusion: Jordanian parturients report high levels of pain during the second stage of labor. Reevaluation of current reproductive policies regarding labor pain management is warranted.
