Aim: Traumatic childbirth is among the important factors that make childbirth an unpleasant experience and has psychological negative effects on women. This study aimed to determine the prevalence and risk factors associated with traumatic childbirth. Subject and methods: In this cross-sectional study, 400 women were interviewed in the first 48 h after childbirth in Torbate-heydariyeh (eastern Iran) in 2015. Traumatic childbirth was determined based on DSM-V-A criteria. Statistical analysis of the data was done through chi-square and logistic regression. Results: The prevalence of traumatic childbirth was 48.3 (N = 193). Logistic regression showed variables such as place of residence, type of delivery, pregnancy complications, bleeding during pregnancy, rupture of grade 3 or 4 during delivery, and emergency cesarean section were significantly correlated with traumatic childbirth (p <0.001). Conclusion: Considering the high prevalence of traumatic childbirth, it is recommended that its associated risk factors be identified so that negative psychological consequences for the mother can be prevented. © 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
