Lack of training and preparation is the main cause of the increasing of medical interventions in mothers with maternal and fetal complications. Women's satisfaction from childbirth experience, service providers, policy makers, health care systems are among the the most important indicators of quality of care systems. The aim of this study was to survey the effect of mothers' Group Edication on maternal satisfaction and pain intensity in mothers referred to health centers in Zanjan, in 2013. Materials & Methods: In this interventional and quasi-experimental study, 280 primipara pregnant women, who were referred to the medical centers of Zanjan in 2013-2014, were selected through stratified cluster sampling method, and they were randomly assigned in two groups of experimental and control. Eight sessions of 90-minute pregnancy readiness classes were held for the experimental group, while mothers in the control group were received the usual education. A questionnaire was used to collect the data in two phases of pre-test and post-test, then they were analyzed using SPSS through chi square, Fischer, and t-test. Results: According to the results, there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of age, Body Mass Index (BMI), education level, gestational age, and employment status. The preintervention pain intensity was not significantly different; however, the pain intensity at 3-4 cm dilation and 7-8 cm dilation in the physiologic labor group was significantly less than in the control group (p = 0.001). The results showed significant differences between birth mothers' satisfaction in both trained and untrained mothers (p <0.000). Conclusions: The findings show the effect of mothers education on pain intensity and mothers' satisfaction. The widespread use of physiologic labor could improve qualitative indicators for maternal health.
