Material & Methods: By a cross sectional study, 140 primipar women were selected .A questionnaire was used for data to be collected. The questionnaire was designed upon behavioral intention model which included some variables such as knowledge, evaluation of results, normal subjectives, attitude and intention of participants. Results: The mean age of women was 23.2±2.8 and most of them were at high school levels. The mean knowledge score of participants was 52.7 out of 100.Evaluation of results and attitude showed mean scores of 22 out of 30 and 50 out of 80 respectively. More than 60% of selected women were doctors as the most important normal subjective and 70% or more of them intended to do a normal delivery. Conclusion: This study showed a relation between knowledge, attitude and intention. Also, a relation between normal subjective and intention to comply was proved, more intervention is needed to decrease the prevalence of cesarean section.
