This study aimed to explore midwives' experience about midwife-mother relationship in delivery room.

Results: Relationship as the nature of midwifery care was core theme that emerged from the data. The data analysis showed four subcategories: contextual factors (deterrent & facilitating factors), midwife’s professional characteristics, ethical principles and respect the dignity. These were explained in detail in the main text of article.

Conclusion: To overcome the barriers, policy makers need to understand the complex factors that influence on midwife - mother relationship.
