Reliability of the observational checklist and record analysis proforma were computed by inter-rater method to establish the equivalence of the tool by administering the tool to the 20 subjects.
Results: The findings showed that more than half (53%) of women got good intrapartum care and very few women got (3%) very good intrapartum care.
Conclusion: The study concluded that there is a huge need for improvement in the area of intrapartum care to reach the level of very good care.
