Women's satisfaction with the management of their birth in premature ruptures of membranes. Premature rupture of membranes is a common situation among reasons for admission and active management of labor. Knowing satisfaction of the women after the care received in the care of their birth and birth process allows them to understand their experience and improve the evidence in the management of the end of pregnancies. The objective of the study was to determine the level of satisfaction of women according to the management of labor in premature rupture of membranes. The design was descriptive of cross section in two hospitals of the third level of Tenerife. The 598 women included in the study voluntarily self-completed the "Mackey Childbirth Satisfaction Rating Scale" validated in Spanish. Variables were collected by means of the subsequent interview and review of the clinical history before hospital discharge. Satisfaction scores were compared using nonparametric tests with a significance level p <0.05 by statistical package. No differences were found in the satisfaction of women with premature rupture of membranes subjected to an active management through the different methods of induction, as well as between spontaneous and active management of labor. Monitoring and improving the quality of care for obstetric interventions involves incorporating the perspective of women through their satisfaction. Adapting the childbirth model to the needs of mothers, newborns and their families.
