Background: Indonesia ranks second in terms of maternal mortality in Southeast Asia while the highest maternal mortality rate in Indonesia was contributed by the provinces of West Java, East Java, and Central Java. Since then, Central Java Province made a mapping of maternal mortality locations last year and Grobogan Regency had the highest number of maternal deaths, particularly in the area of Brati. Even at the beginning of 2022, there had been a maternal death in the area of Brati due to cephalo-pelvic disproportion (CPD).
Aim: Therefore, this study aimed to describe maternal emergency management at the Brati Health Centre.
Methods: The design of this study was explanatory research with a cross-sectional approach and the respondents are midwives in Brati Health Centre. After one month of data collecting, this research has reached 8 respondents that were 30–48 years of age with various education levels and long years of experience.
Results: The result of this study showed that half of the respondents have done the assessments of maternal emergency cases better and the majority of respondents have managed the cases better too. However, there were only 3 of 8 respondents who had experienced maternal emergency courses. Even more, there was still one respondent who never did any maternal emergency course.
Conclusion: In conclusion, maternal emergency management at Brati Health Care were good enough but there were some improvements needed, such as conducting a maternal emergency course.
