A participator team including housewives, teachers, sales, health communicators' physicians, midwifes and nurses were responsible for educating the selected women about the indication of cesarean section and benefits of vaginal birth. The contexts of the educated women were evaluated by a questionnaire from before and after education. In this research about 70 of the women were satisfied with the education program. Also frequency of cesarean which were 63 before intervention and after education decreased to 51 as a result of the education. The result of this study indicated that in health subjects such a cesarean which is related to society and human culture, participatory interventions can yield satisfactory results.
