Background: Physiological childbirth refers to the natural birthing process that does not involve medical or pharmaceutical interventions. This method is characterized by spontaneous labor, the absence of medical interventions, freedom of movement, and active participation of the mother. Rate of cesarean delivery has been increasing over the past decade in Iran, accounting for approximately 50% of all births in the country as Iranian healthcare officials have also promoted physiological childbirth. In this regard, it is important to recognize that physiological birth is a personal choice; therefore, women should receive the necessary information and support to make informed decisions about their birth experiences. Besides, it is critical to provide the necessary education for healthcare providers and engage with women to address their cultural and social beliefs about childbirth. Additionally, the supportive policies of the government that promote physiological childbirth and educational programs can also be valuable in this regard.
