Background: World Health Organization (WHO) in 2015 states that more than 289,000 women died during, after pregnancy, and childbirth. The causes of maternal mor­tality in In­don­esia are diverse, both medical and non-medical. In 2019, data from the Indonesian Ministry of Health shows that 90% of maternal deaths occur due to di­rect death at delivery. The importance of this study is supported by Minister of Indo­ne­­sian Health Regulation Number 97 in 2014 about government policy on inte­grat­ed ANC service. Maternal health services aim to fulfill the right of every pregnant woman to obtain quality health services. This study aimed to understand the perception of preg­nant mothers on the integrated ANC program.

Results: Maternal perception, knowledge, attention, and expectation of integrated ANC prog­ram were good.

Conclusion: Maternal perception, knowledge, attention, and expectation of integrated ANC program are good.
