Objective: Pregnancy is associated with numerous mental and physical changes in women. These changes are likely to be associated with reduced quality of life. The purpose of this study was to assess the quality of life in pregnant women in Kashan, central Iran. Methodology: We conducted a descriptive- analytical cross -sectional study on 600 pregnant women. The participants completed the Short Form Health Survey to report quality of life during antenatal visit. Results: The lowest life quality score was obtained in "functional limitations due to physical health problems" and "vitality". Some dimensions of health in SF-36 was correlated with age, gestational age, gravid, education, income. (P< 0/05). Conclusion: Paying attention to factors negatively affecting dimensions of quality of life during pregnancy and planning to reduce their impact can result in enhancing the quality of life among pregnant women.
