Background: Maternal satisfaction is a complex term which consists of a multiple scope of satisfaction, as patients may be satisfied with one aspect of care but not with another, and experience may change across various care providers’ components and it is one of the most frequently reported outcome measures for quality of care. Very few studies concerned with maternal satisfaction on institutional delivery among postnatal mothers were documented; even those documented studies did not use appropriate design and use small sample size, and were not on SNNPR, Ethiopia, so this study intended to assess the level of maternal’ satisfaction towards institutional delivery services among postnatal mothers in Dilla town, SNNPR, Ethiopia.
