This descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the levels of work-related stress, burnout and job satisfaction in midwives. It was conducted between March 1 and April 31, 2005, in 35 public health clinics which provide primary health care in the city of Antalya. The research population consisted of 325 midwives who responded to a questionnaire about the sociodemographic characteristics of the subjects and their working places as well as the Work-Related Strain Inventory (Revicki, May, and Whitley, 1997) translated into Turkish by Aslan, Alparslan, Aslan, Kesepara, and Unal, 1998), the Maslach Burnout Inventory (Maslach and Jackson, 1981), adapted to Turkey by Ergin (1992) and the Minnesota Work Satisfaction Questionnaire. The midwives' Work-Related Strain Inventory mean score was at the moderate level and the burnout subcategory of emotional exhaustion mean score level was moderate. Depersonalization was low and personal accomplishment was moderate.
