We explored predictors of women's satisfaction with postpartum nursing centers, which have become popular in Taiwan in recent years. After completing a consent form and demographic questionnaire, 401 women from different centers identified by proportional stratified quota sampling completed four questionnaires over the telephone after their fourth week postpartum. A high level of social support and low level of postpartum stress significantly predicted their satisfaction with the postpartum nursing centers. Future studies will be needed to determine whether, compared to traditional care at home, the postpartum nursing centers can help ease mothers' transition to parenthood and improve their childcare competence. 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
