What is it about?

This study investigates factors influencing pregnancy risks among Indonesian women in their third trimester. Using data from 128 pregnant women, we analyzed various maternal characteristics and the consistency of antenatal care visits. Findings reveal that age, number of pregnancies, pregnancy history, and regular antenatal care significantly impact pregnancy risk status. The number of pregnancies emerges as the strongest predictor. This research offers valuable insights for healthcare providers to identify high-risk pregnancies and implement targeted interventions for better maternal and fetal health outcomes.

Why is it important?

In the context of maternal healthcare, identifying and managing high-risk pregnancies early is crucial for ensuring the well-being of both mothers and infants. Our study addresses this by examining a range of maternal factors and their relationship to pregnancy risk status, providing practical insights for healthcare providers. As pregnancy complications can have profound effects on maternal and fetal health, our research contributes to improving antenatal care strategies, particularly in resource-limited settings like Indonesia.


As a healthcare provider, I recognize the importance of understanding the factors contributing to pregnancy risks to deliver optimal care to expectant mothers. By shedding light on the significant predictors of pregnancy risk status, this study equips healthcare professionals with valuable knowledge to tailor antenatal care interventions effectively. Ultimately, our findings aim to empower healthcare providers to enhance maternal and fetal outcomes by identifying and addressing high-risk pregnancies promptly and comprehensively.
