The aim of this study was to determine whether personality and/or psychological functioning affect mothers' perceptions of postnatal communication and their level of satisfaction with their postnatal care. Mothers' perceptions of the communication with health professionals prenatally and during birth may be affected by their personality traits and psychological functioning and are linked to the level of satisfaction they have in their healthcare. Little is known about factors that are associated with perceptions of communication within postnatal care and the impact this may have on satisfaction with care.
