Background & Aim: The physiologic childbirth program in Iran is an emerging program that needs to be evaluated like any other program to improve its quality and process. Evidence suggests that the implementation of the physiologic childbirth program faces some challenges. The present research aimed to explore the challenges of the physiologic childbirth program from the perspective of service providers.
Methods & Materials: This qualitative research was carried out through a content analysis method in two mother-friendly hospitals of Ahwaz and Mashhad in 2016-2017. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with 17 physiologic childbirth service providers. The content analysis method of Elo and Kyngas was used for qualitative data analysis.
Results: Data analysis led to five main categories: low motivation of midwives in performing physiologic childbirth; barriers related to manpower; medical interventions in physiologic childbirth; challenges from the environment and facilities; and educational barriers.
Conclusion: Different challenges in interaction with each other create a complex environment in which the implementation of physiologic childbirth program becomes more difficult. Therefore, policymakers, authorities, doctors, midwives and mothers need to work in a coordinated way to resolve the mentioned challenge.
