Background and Objectives: Labor pain is one of the most severe pains. Given the importance of reducing labor pain and prioritizing natural delivery, this study was performed with the objective of investigating the effect of local heat therapy on pain, delivery outcomes, and rate of satisfaction in primiparous women.
 
Methods: This clinical trial study was conducted on 80 primiparous women in Karaj city. The samples were selected using easy sampling and assigned to two groups, then, pain severity, delivery outcomes, and rate of satisfaction, were recorded in the two groups,. Data were analyzed using independent and dependent t-tests at the significance level of p<0.05.
 
Results: In this study, there was a significant difference between the two groups in variables of severity of pain, mean duration of first and second stages of the labor, frequency distribution of satisfaction of the studied subjects in terms of the type of intervention, satisfaction from the delivery process, first experience of breastfeeding, and mothers’ satisfaction from embracing their newborn babies (p<0.05); however, there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of the mean duration of the third stage, the mean Apgar score, the duration of embracing the infant, and the first infant's breastfeeding.
 
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it seems that control of pain and making satisfaction using noninvasive methods of local heat therapy without affecting adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, promote progression and encourage mothers for normal delivery.
