Background: The rate of cesarean section in our society is increasing every day. This research was done to study the effects of mother’s personal preference about the mode of delivery on the outcome of delivery in pregnant women who recieved perinatal care in Taleghani and Mahdieh Hospitals. Material and methods: This cross-sectional study was done on 160 women pregnant with there first babies. Mothers’ characteristics: First pregnancy, no systemic disease, no indication for cesarean section before labor pain, no history of infertility, non-smokers. All subjects were interviewed about their preferences regarding the method of delivery. Results: Ninety-four women, (58.8%), preferred to have a normal vaginal delivery, and 66, (41.2%), chose cesarean section. From the first group, 65 (61.3%) cases and from the second group, 41 (38.7%) cases came back to the same hospital for delivery. The rate of cesarean section in the first group was 12.3% and in the second group was 34.1% (P<0.01).
