Abstract: Anxiety and fear during labor tends to center in the unknown and lack of perceived controlled labor. Women’s fear and anxiety usually augmented by an added worry surging from just being in an alien hospital environment, within unfamiliar people and strange equipment. In a hospital setting, the parturient encounters, additional stress from strange equipment, odd sounds, unfamiliar smell, and an unfriendly over all contexts. Researchers about Saudi women’s childbirth experience are scarce, especially in relation to psychological aspects of the experience. Therefore, the need for researches is crucial when the target is to provide a better intranatal care that meets the patient’s actual needs. The purpose of the study was to identify sources of stress during an institutionalized childbirth by Saudi women, and determine maternal anxiety levels in relation to the identified sources of stress. The study was undertaken in the labor and delivery unit of El-Shemasi maternal and child hospital, in Riyadh City, Saudi Arabia. The sample comprised sixty-eight parturient women. It was a non-probability convenient sample. A specially designed interview schedule is utilized for data collection. Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale (TMAS) was used after modification to suit Saudi culture. Contingency coefficient and its significance were used, and stepwise multiple regressions was undertaken to identify sources contributed significantly to anxiety with anxiety being the dependent variable and different sources are predictor’s variables. The level of anxiety was significantly correlated by another parturient in the same room, sounds of other parturient yelling/screaming, room capacity, room light (P<0.05). Also, baby sex (boy), and lack of a supporting person during parturition is highly significant (P<0.01). The results of stepwise multiple regression of anxiety during labor and after 6-12 hours from childbirth is statistically significant between anxiety level during these two different times (P<0.05)
