Abstract:
Introduction: Family, the most fundamental institution in society, is established and is dependent on women and the health of women as a guarantee for the health of the family - hence, the health of society. Accordingly, articles by international health organizations support mothers and consider the home as the most appropriate place for a woman's delivery. Objective: Determining the reasons for home delivery and its unpleasant results in Koohdasht city. Sample: 750 subjects selected contributed to the study. Design: This was a descriptive study in which data was gathered through questionnaires. Results: Findings revealed that the reasons for home delivery according to its frequency were financial problems, personal willingness, past home delivery experience, fast delivery, fear of problems during transportation to hospital, no accessibility of husband, etc. While, there were unpleasant results such as early hemorrhage, constipation, urinary retention, perennial laceration and episiotomy, there were not any reports of late hemorrhage, prolapse of uterus, compression of placenta, activity intolerance after two weeks following delivery, inability to lactate in the first 24 hours or mother's mortality. Furthermore, the infants did not cry just after birth, and stillbirth, neonatal mortality, and umbilical infection were not reported. Conclusion: As there were more unpleasant results compared to wanted consequences, it is suggested that pregnant women be provided with organized and supported systems established with experienced and knowledgeable midwives.
