Mother’s satisfaction during the birthing process is an important indicator in evaluating quality of maternity services. The aim of the study is to find out the women’s satisfaction with hospital based intrapartum care in a medical college of western Nepal.

MATERIAL AND METHODS Cross-sectional analytical study was conducted to find women’s satisfaction with hospital based intrapartum care in a medical college of western Nepal among 332 postpartum inpatient women delivered in Lumbini Medical College and Teaching Hospital, Pravas, Palpa, who were selected by using purposive sampling technique. A pretested interview schedule was used for data collection. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistics were used for data analysis.

RESULTS The study findings revealed that about half of the respondents (50.9%) were satisfied with hospital based intrapartum care. The level of satisfaction was significantly associated with gravida (p=0.008), type of labor onset (p=0.007) and episiotomy status (p<0.001).

Adequate counseling, reassurance and supportive care of women during intrapartum period might increase their satisfaction with intrapartum care.
