Background: The rate of maternal mortality is higher significantly in Cesarean operation. The main causes of death include: endomiometritis, bleeding, urinary tract infection and tromboembolism. While WHO has set the goal of 15% till year 2010 for cesareans, it rate was 52.4% and 54% for Isfahan province and Khomeinyshahr, respectively in 2008. The aim of this study was to determine factors influencing choice of this type of delivery. Methods: The research was performed as a cross-sectional study among 190 women who had delivery in first quarter of 2008. Data collected by questionnaire and interview and analyzed through t-test, c2, Spearman and Pearson correlation tests. Findings: Mean and standard deviation of knowledge value was 71 ± 2.3 and 62.6 ± 2 in women with normal delivery and cesarean section, respectively (P < 0.05). Mean and standard deviation value of attitude among women with normal delivery and cesarean section was 51.5 ± 1 and 45.7 ± 8 respectively (P < 0.05). Frequency of effective factors in choosing the type of delivery was different significantly in women with normal delivery and cesarean section. Conclusion: In addition to knowledge and attitudes, other factors also affect the choice of type of delivery such as: the doctor, husband, friends and personal beliefs. Therefore improving the knowledge and attitudes of women regarding cesarean section we could reduce its rate.
