The 598 women included in the study voluntarily self-completed the "Mackey Childbirth Satisfaction Rating Scale" validated in Spanish. Variables were collected by means of the subsequent interview and review of the clinical history before hospital discharge. Satisfaction scores were compared using nonparametric tests with a significance level p <0.05 by statistical package.
