Data was analyzed by Spss software (version 16) and Spearman/Pearson correlation coefficients and regression. Results: The result of Pearson correlation coefficients showed a significant reverse correlation between happiness and perceived stress (P < 0.0001, r = - 0.88) and a significant reverse correlation between happiness and maternity blues of the third day (P < 0.0001, r = -0.92) and tenth day (P < 0.0001, r= - 0.90) Conclusions: There is a relationship between happiness with perceived stress during labor and maternity blues after delivery.
