Background and aims: In two recent decades, researcher’s attention was to the relationship between personality traits and labor pain perception, but there are few native studies about this. Because of the importance of satisfaction and women's health in labor pain experience, this study was done with the aim of identification role of personality traits in perception of labor pain.

Methods: The present study is a correlational descriptive-analytic study. The data were collected by questionnaires about personality traits and perception of labor pain from 220 parturient women referred to Valiasr Hospital. The data were analyzed by descriptive and analytic statistics tests such as Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression tests.

Results: The results of the study indicated that among the factors influencing the perception of labor pain, the reaction to pain was meaningfully predicted by personality dimensions of neuroticism (β=0.26, P=0.004), openness experience (β=0.20, P=0.034). Neuroticism (β=0.20, P=0.020) and openness experience (β=0.19, P=031) are the positive predicting factors, and conscientiousness (β=-0.20, P=0.042) was a negative predicting factor for labor pain intolerance. Agreeableness (β=0.31, P=0.001), neuroticism (β=0.20, P=0.023) and openness experience (β=0.18, P=0.042) were the predictive factors for pain depth. Among all personality traits, only openness experience (β=-0.19, P=0.044) was the negative predictive factor for the acceptance of labor pain. Also neuroticism (β=0.29, P=0.001) and openness experience (β=0.19, P=0.041) were the positive predictive factors and conscientiousness (β=-0.24, P=0.023) was the negative predictive factor for the total score of the perception of labor pain.

Conclusion: Correct consultation and suitable education in pregnancy based on personality traits and using different methods in reducing childbirth pain can help mothers to gain pleasurable labor pain experience for them.
