Abstract

Introduction: Communication between midwives and parturient women affects the quality of childbirth experience. It can improve or degrade women experience of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. This study was carried out to determine barriers of effective communication between midwives and parturient women from the viewpoint of both groups.

Data were collected by a researcher-made questionnaire that combined qualitative and quantitative methods. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 19, descriptive and inferential test (t-test). Results: From the viewpoint of midwives; hardness of midwifery job, shortage of midwife to woman ratio, lack of work motivation, and from the viewpoint of parturient women; bad-tempered of midwife, misunderstanding of mothers needs and inappropriate environmental conditions were reported as the most important barriers of effective communication between midwives and parturient women. Conclusion: There were differences in prioritizing communication barriers between the viewpoint of midwives and parturient women. These barriers need to be resolved by the health care system.
