Abstract

ANC (Antenatal Care) is an activity to detect abnormalities as well as regularly check the condition of the mother and fetus during pregnancy. Anc should be performed at least four times during pregnancy. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted maternal and child health services (MCH), reducing visits to K1 and K4 health facilities. The Research with the qualitative research design was carried out from January to March 2022 in each of the seven sub-districts in Manggarai Regency, Public Health Centre in Langke Lembong district, Ruteng, Lelak, and Satar Mese. The results showed that the availability of health workers was sufficient where there were midwives responsible for the implementation of antenatal care, and the provision of personal protective equipment was sufficient. Midwives facilitated appointments via WhatsApp and home visits. Pregnant women were advised to read books for the prevention of Emergencies. The implementation of maternity care during the Covid pandemic did not differ significantly from the services provided in the pre-pandemic period. It only differed in the method of the services provided. While still complying with health protocols, it is expected to increase the number of supporting facilities and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to support the smooth implementation of ANC services.
