Lived experience of postpartum mothers on obstetric care refers to the personal knowledge they gained through direct interaction and involvement with facility-based care rendered to them during pregnancy, labour and immediate postpartum period. The study explored the lived experiences of postpartum mothers with obstetric care in secondary health facilities in Ibadan metropolis of Oyo State, Nigeria. A descriptive phenomenological research design was adopted using Focus Group Discussion (FGDs). A convenient sampling method was used in selecting participant, the discussion included 3 groups of 7 participants and 7 groups of 8 participants with 2 FGDs in 3 facilities and 4 FGDs at the last centre and data saturation was achieved, making a total of 10 Focus Group Discussions held. Total numbers of 77 women participated in the study. A self-developed Focus Group Discussion guide was used and validated by expert in the field of nursing. It was concluded that mothers had different experiences during pregnancy and labour period. Therefore, the informative competence demonstrated by the health care provider should be reinforced and to improve on the areas where mothers were displeased, government and other relevant agencies should consider the improvement of maternal and child health care services by employing competent hands and equipping the health facilities.
