Midwives are recognized as responsible health professionals who work and establish partnerships with women in providing “Continuity of care” based on the Reproductive Health service for women, infants, toddlers, and family planning. Midwives have an essential role in guarding maternal and neonatal health, which is to reduce maternal and fetal mortality. This systematic literature review aimed to identify the implementation of Continuity of care. We used eight steps including: identifying midwifery problems, determining the priority of problems and research questions, creating frameworks, conducting literature searching, selecting articles, performing critical appraisal, extracting data from selected literature, and mapping the literature. There were 15 articles found, and then the main points were classified into the definition of Continuity of care, identification of the implementation about continuity of care from the client’s perception, identification of the implementation about continuity of care from the midwife’s perception as the service provider, the advantages of the continuity of care practice, and the barriers found in the service of delivery process using the midwifery continuity of care model. Conclusion: The maternal mortality rate is still a substantial indicator to evaluate the quality of life; therefore, maternal and child health needs to be paid attention to because mothers who experience pregnancy and childbirth have a risk of mortality. Midwives are also expected to apply midwifery care to the Continuity of care to carry out their role in reducing maternal mortality and infant mortality, because continuity of care carried out by midwives serves to develop a good relationship of trust between midwives and clients. Therefore, women will be more open-minded to midwives, and midwives can quickly provide accurate care to women.
