Background and Objectives: Further to medical reasons, some non-medical causes also encourage pregnant women to choose elective caesarian including the fear of the pain of natural delivery. In this study, the effect of the level of religious regulation compliance among pregnant women on their decision about the type of delivery in an Iranian community was measured.

Material and Methods: In this case-control study, two groups of mothers with elective caesarian (n=113) and with natural vaginal delivery (n=132) were matched based on some variables. Written consent form was taken. Data collection tool included a standard and validated questionnaire. Data were recorded on the instrument by a trained expert via interview sessions. T-test and chi-squre test were used to analyze the data.

Results: There was no significant difference between the two groups of mothers based on the matched variables (p>0.05). Both groups showed an acceptable level of religious regulations compliance and obtained high scores from the questionnaire. Of the 25 items of the questionnaire, there was only a significant difference between the scores of three questions in the two groups of mothers (p<0.05). For the rest of tht items, no significant difference was observed between the scores of the two groups of mothers.

Conclusion: Fortunately, both groups of mothers obtained high scores for their religious regulation compliance. It seems that regarding the importance of these high scores in a religious community, it is possible to reduce the high prevalence of the elective caesarian using Islamic regulations as well as Islamic advices.
