Objective: To evaluate the quality of assistance to eutocic delivery in a university hospital. Method: This is a cross-sectional, descriptive study with a quantitative approach, carried out during May 2015. The sample was obtained in a conventional way: women who have had eutocic deliveries were interviewed no more than 48 hours after delivery. Those who gave birth at home or en route to the hospital and those who were admitted already in the expulsive stage were excluded. The data will be analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, using the SPSS 20.0 software. The study was approved by the Research Ethics Committee under protocol no. 1.034.398. Expected results: It is believed that the study will contribute to improving the quality and safety of assistance to women during childbirth, aimed at the humanization of care to labor and delivery.
