Abstract Introduction: Pregnancy has a specific condition that can affect sleeping patterns. About 2/3 of pregnant women complain of their sleeping patterns as abnormal. Such disturbances in sleeping patterns, besides in physical and psychological side-affects in women, can affect the labor process such as the length of labor and type of delivery. Thus, analytic cohort study was conducted to determine the association between sleeping disturbances in the last month of pregnancy as well as the length of labor and type of delivery. Materials & Methods: Method of sampling in this study was sequential and non-randomized. Women with the specifications of research units were selected for the study. 139 women (59 subject without disturbances and 85 ones with sleeping disturbances) were followed until delivery. The information was collected through filling in the questionnaires and using checklists of observation. Findings: The results of this study indicated that the average first stage of labor length time in the group without a sleep disturbance was 66 minutes less than that of the group with disturbances. The average second stage of labor length in the group with disturbed patterns was 25 minutes shorter than the other group. Statistically, this difference was significant (P < 0/001). The average for the three stage labor length between the two groups was not significant (P > 0.05).The results also showed that the chance of cesarean section among the disturbed group was 2.7 times more than the other group (CI= 0/83 – 8/5 , RR = 2/7 ) . Using X2 test according to (P = 0/096) this difference was proved as significant, further more, sleeping disturbances are of no effect in increasing cesarean prevalence. Conclusion: There, It is concluded that sleeping disturbance is associated with increasing the first and second stages of labor length, but has no influence on the 3rd stage labor length and the type of delivery
