The educational program about cesarean was included four sections of 90min in the form of group education. The questionnaire written by Seyedeh Nouri & Jamshidi was used, and outcomes were included knowledge and attitude that were measured before and after the intervention. Data were analyzed by SPSS 19.0 using T and Chi-square tests.
Findings: The mean age of the experimental group was 27.37±0.00, and the control group was 27.91±0.00. There was no significant difference between the experimental and control groups in demographic variables (p>0.05). Before training, the mean of knowledge was not significantly different, but training was significantly different between the experimental and control groups. The mean scores of dimensions of the reasons for choosing cesarean section before training were not significantly different between the experimental group and control group (p>0.05), but after training, there were significant differences between the two groups (p<0.05).
