Abstract

The ability of pregnant women to detect early of a high risk pregnancy is still below the average which is one of the causes of complications that can endanger the wellbeing of the mother and fetus. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between factors of parity, knowledge and exposure to information on the independence of mothers in early detection of the risk of pregnancy. This type of analytic observational research uses a cross sectional design. A total sample of 125 pregnant women was chosen by “Stratified Random Sampling” technique. The results of Multiple Logistic Regression Analysis show that the knowledge variable Exp (B) 6.657 is a significant variable, the exposure to danger information variable Exp (B) 7.657 is a significant variable and the parity variable Exp (B) 8.060 is also a significant variable. Midwives and health workers further increase counseling so that pregnant women and families can receive more information about the danger signs of pregnancy, especially the high risk of pregnancy and being able to do early detection.
