Delivery is an important life event for
women. Labor pain is the primary cause of women
avoiding normal vaginal delivery and tendency toward
cesarean section as an alternative method. Some women
suffer from postpartum depression, illness, sleep
disturbances, constipation and sexual disorders which
are related to mode of delivery. The present study
aimed to compare postpartum sleep quality after
cesarean and normal vaginal delivery. The sample
consist of 30 women with normal delivery and 30
women with cesarean at 3 month postpartum. Sleep
quality was measured by using PSQI questionnaire.
Mean PSQI score in normal delivery mothers group
11.77±2.28 and Caesarean mothers 12.37 ±2.08, p value
is 0.284.We found that there is no statistically
significant difference between mode of delivery and
sleep in the postpartum.
