A Perception of Caesarian Delivery Scale that measured the incidence and severity of perceptions and feelings in response to recent Caesarian delivery was administered to 60 mothers who had had Caesarian sections. The scores obtained from this scale were analyzed by factor analysis to determine the relationships within categories of responses, and were analyzed by one-way ANOVA to measure any variation among different demographic groups. A reliability coefficient of 0.93 was obtained for this scale. Factor analysis of the quantitative data defined four categories of women's perceptions associated with Caesarian delivery. Each of the four categories were labeled and discussed. However, there were no significant differences in factor scores between groups with different parities, types of anesthesia, and types of Caesarian section.
