Introduction: Pain is a common and inevitable component of labor process and is considered as the most severe pain in human. Regarding the importance of reducing labor pain and prioritizing natural vaginal delivery, this study was conducted to determine the effect of localized cold treatment modality on labor pain in primiparous women. Methods: This clinical trial was conducted among 80 primiparous eligible women eligible in Karaj Maternity Hospitals, Karaj, Iran. The samples were randomly assigned into two groups of control and intervention. To determine the severity of pain and duration of delivery, McGill's Pain Questionnaire was used. Data analysis was performed using independent samples and paired t-tests in SPSS software, version 19. P-value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: There was a significant difference between the groups regarding the severity of pain, mean duration of first and second stages of labor, frequency distribution of satisfaction of the subjects, satisfaction with breastfeeding and cuddling (P<0.05). However, no significant difference was observed between the groups in terms of the mean duration of the third stage of labor, mean Apgar scores, time of cuddling, and satisfaction with breastfeeding (P=0.49, P>0.05, P=0.43, and P=0.86, respectively). Conclusion: Cold treatment modality was useful for controlling labor pain in comparison to routine care.
