The sampling method was convenient sampling method. For collecting data, three questionnaires, comprising demographic information, perception of labor pain questionnaire, and a questionnaire about women's attitudes toward medical ethics in the childbirth process were completed by parturient women during 24 and 48 hours after delivery. The data were loaded into SPSS-22 and analyzed using the Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple linear regression analysis in p<0.05 significance level.
Results: The results of multiple regression analysis showed that among the four principles of professional ethics, the first (autonomy), second and third principles of medical ethics (as beneficence and non-maleficence) predicted the perception of labor pain (p<0.05). Among the components of these principles, mother’s privacy related to first principle (B=-0.28, p=0.003), mother’s health (B=-0.23, p=0.017) and mother’s need for pain reductions (B=-0.18, p=0.014) related to second and third principles were negative predictors of labor pain perception score.
Conclusion: According to the findings of this study, the birthing team can make a pleasant experience for mothers by considering autonomy, benefice, and non-malfeasance principles to parturient and improvement of communication skills in the delivery room.
