Indicators of maternal monitoring imple can be seen from figure K1 coverage (visit pregnant women in the first pregnancy) and K4 (contact at least 4 times during pregnancy for antenatal care).

Methods: This study was conducted with the observational design of the “cross-sectional”, is a study to learn the dynamics of the correlation between risk factors with effects, with the approach, observation or data collection at once at some point (time point approach).

Result: Variable associated with compliance standards of village midwives in implementing the ANC in the province of East Java is the level of knowledge (p) = 0.014 and the infrastructure required to ANC (p) = 0.000. Other variables did not show a significant relationship such as: age (p) = 0.121, status (p) = 0.831, period of employment (p) = 0.147, education (p) = 0.153, training (p) = 0.664, motivation (p) = 0.525, supervision (p) = 0.887, and rewards (p) = 0.663.

Facilities and infrastructure that support the implementation of Antenatal Care (ANC) should be facilitated effectively, to support midwives performance in implementing standards of care Antenatal Care.
