Publication Information
This study was conducted in order to evaluate validity and reliability of the Korean version scale to measure maternal satisfaction in normal birth(KSMMS-normal birth). The SMMS-normal birth was administered to 205 postnatal women, together with the perception of birth experience scale. An exploratory factor analysis revealed six factors solution for the twenty three-item scale. Confirmatory factor analysis supported good convergent and discriminant validities, and factor correlations ranged from 0.11 to 0.57. The KSMMS-normal birth showed good concurrent validity with the perception of birth experience scale. The Cronbach alpha for the total scale was .91. It ranged between .80 to .90 for six subscales. The KSMMS-normal birth is reliable and valid instrument to measure maternal satisfaction. Therefore this scale can be used to assess maternal satisfaction in normal birth at hospital during the postpartum 2nd and 3rd day.
