Methodology: This qualitative study was conducted in 2020 in Iran. 17 participants were selected from midwives policy makings, midwives working in the maternity ward and mothers in private and public hospitals in Iran, Kashan. In-depth semi-structured individual interviews were used to collect data. Data analysis was performed using the conventional content analysis method according to the proposed steps of Graneheim and Lundman.
Results: From the data analysis, four themes emerged under the headings of "midwifery clinical competence", "mother empowerment", " Provide clinical care " and "appropriate physical resources, facilities and equipment", which include the nature and dimensions of midwifery care quality.
Conclusion: Midwifery care quality refers to how clinical care is provided in different stages of labor, which is done by a competent midwife to provide facilities to empower the mother by creating a supportive environment and a sense of self-efficacy in the delivery process in a suitable physical environment.

Key words: Midwifery care, Care quality, Qualitative Study, Content Analysis , Maternity.
