Abstract: A descriptive exploratory study. Using a semi-structured questionnaire, we interviewed a representative sample of women in the postpartum ward a few hours before discharge from a governmental hospital. The interviews were conducted during two random days each week over 4 months in 2008. Each day, after identification of all eligible cases , we interviewed every other woman . A total of 176 women were interviewed out of 1,489 women who delivered over the 4 months.
