To investigate situations of obstetric violence in the perception of puerperal women in a teaching hospital. Descriptive study, with a qualitative approach. Data collection used a semi-structured interview with 17 puerperal women. The puerperal women's statements were transcribed and analyzed through content analysis in the thematic modality proposed by Bardin. From the analysis of the statements, four thematic categories emerged: 1) Disrespect for the parturient, 2) Obstetric violence, 3) Violence revealed, 4) Unknown violence. The study revealed the need for changes in childbirth care to make is more welcoming, with pregnant women's protagonism, respecting their rights constituted by laws, and using good obstetric practices for a humanized childbirth free of violence.
