A lot research has focused on the study of women satisfaction with delivery. Different events are related to childbirth satisfaction, unplanned cesarean deliveries, instrumental vaginal deliveries, pain and lack of control during labor can generate a negative delivery experience. The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between mode of delivery and childbirth satisfaction. The final sample was composed of 106 women in early postpartum, which voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. A total of 34,9% were instrumental deliveries, and 17% were cesarean sections. The Mackey Childbirth Satisfaction Rating Scale was used to measure women’ satisfaction. A significant difference was found in the baby scale between the groups of eutocic and non-eutocic delivery (p = ,045). A significant difference was found in the baby scale (p < ,001) and the partner scale (p = ,006) between the groups of vaginal and cesarean section delivery. Mode of delivery can be a variable that affects the childbirth experience, influencing the overall experience in a negative way, thus conditioning women’ mode of delivery in future pregnancies.
