Abstract

Healthy nutrition is very important for fetal development during pregnancy. A pregnant mother is expected to gain adequate energy, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamin C, and iron in daily food to prevent anemia. Many factors inhibit the fulfillment of nutrients during pregnancy. Support from midwives is needed to help mothers understand how to meet their nutritional needs. This study aims to observe the correlation of midwife support with nutritional adequacy to prevent anemia during pregnancy. A cross-sectional study was carried out on 125 pregnant women who had antenatal care at five community health centers in Surabaya. Data were collected using questionnaires and food recall over 24 hours. There was a significant correlation between the midwife support with energy adequacy (r = 0.182, p = 0.042), protein adequacy (r = 0.222, p = 0.013), and iron adequacy (r = 0.208, p = 0.020). Based on the Indonesian Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA), the recommended adequacy of energy is 78.16%, carbohydrates 69.59%, protein 102.87%, vitamin C 118.29%, and iron 171.81%. There was a significant correlation between midwife support and energy, protein and iron adequacy to prevent anemia during pregnancy. Health education with appropriate methods can improve mothers’ ability to meet nutritional adequacy during pregnancy.
