Background: One of the most important indicators of quality of services and monitoring health services is evaluation and assessment of patient satisfaction of services that comes from sociology research. Aim: To identify the effect of providing post partum care at home on maternal received care and satisfaction. Method: This clinical trial was carried out on 200 mothers who referred to Akbar Abad Health Care Center for their infant screening tests. They were randomly allocated to two experimental and control groups. Experimental group received their first and second post partum care at home, but control group only received routine postpartum care of the health center. Data were collected using a questionnaire containing demographic characteristics and some question to assess maternal received care and satisfaction with postpartum care. Chi square and T test were applied for analyzing data using SPSS version 18. P value less than 0.05 considered statistically significant. Results: Most of the mothers were 20-29 years old. Two groups were significantly different in relation to percentage of received care at the first and second post partum and infant care (P=0.00, P=0.01). The average score of emotional and educational services that mothers received and also maternal satisfaction were also significantly different between two groups (p=0.00). Conclusion: Postpartum care provided at home, has positive effect on maternal emotional and educational received care and also their satisfaction. So we suggest post partum health care provision by health care providers at home.
