Being pregnant and giving birth is a pivotal life event and one that a woman ordinarily remembers for most of her life.

This study explored the meaning of a bad childbirth as experienced by women who have given birth in Rwanda.

Methods
In a cross-sectional household study conducted in Northern Province and in Kigali City, the capital of Rwanda, a structured questionnaire was answered by women who had given birth 1 to 13 months earlier.
