Abstract

The time of presence of a mother in a hospital for delivery is appropriate for checking the health of mother and infant, as well as educating her about the postnatal care. Because a successful education is based on the cooperation of learner and teacher, the aim of this survey was to determine and compare the opinions of mothers and nurses about the postnatal educational needs. Fifty-one postnatal nurses (Nurse, midwife and nurse assistant) and 70 mothers, during the first 24 hours of post delivery, completed the standard McMolen’s questionnaire. We found that although postnatal educational needs of mothers and nurses were roughly similar, but the mean scores of educational needs in two groups were significantly different, so that the needs were more important for mothers. Also primipara mothers and those with low educational level, had higher educational needs. Compared to the western surveys, the postnatal educational needs were more important for both mothers and nurses in our stud. This difference could be due to less attendance of mothers to prenatal courses, low educational level, primiparity and cultural differences. Our results re-affirm the importance of cooperation of mothers and nurses to determine the postnatal educational needs.
