Introduction: Quality of life is a notion closely related with a person’s well being and health. Its assessment is very important, as it quantifies the quality of health and social services and it provides for the substantiation of policy actions.
Objective: Assessment of quality of life of an urban sample of Romanian mothers and identification of main demographical influential factors.
Method: Cross sectional study using the BREF Quality of Life Questionnaire of the World Health Organization Results: The most important factor influencing the quality of life was income, especially in the case of the economically disadvantaged. Other influential factors were age and marital status, divorced women encountering difficulties accessing medical services (p<.05). Quality of life for mothers is also negatively correlated with their satisfaction regarding the child`s performances, indicating a connection of the perceived parenting skills with the standard of life.
Conclusion: In Romania and other countries with negative natural growth and low birth rate, the amelioration of the quality of life for mothers must become a priority in public health policy to avoid negative consequences on the life of mothers and on the growth and development of their offspring.
