insufficient and imbalance amount of midwifery increases the workload and burden of midwives in Indonesia. According to IBI (2016), the philosophy of midwives is to give continuous care to increase the quality of maternal services. However the increase in responsibility for midwives, causes a need of a model with continuity of care maternal health service but which decreases the stress and burden of midwives, increases patients’ satisfaction, and supports the midwives life quality. The name of this model is MGP (Midwifery Group Practice). This model consists of 4 midwives who work as a team and replace each other’s work if a midwife is on a holiday or day off to provide antenatal services at home, hospital and community. They receive births for 24 hours and serve the postpartum period for up to 6 weeks. The purpose of this systematic literature review is to identify the implementation of MGP and to provide recommendations regarding MGP implementation which can be implemented in Indonesia. Method: The researcher filtered 815 literatures which use qualitative methods or mix methods from two databases, Pubmed and Sciendirect, to be reviewed. This Systematic Literature Review was adjusted to the Systematic Literature Review with 8 steps. Result: There were 15 articles that fit the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The author divided into sub-sections to facilitate the focus of the discussion, namely definition of MGP, satisfaction of the patients, midwives and students with the service of MGP model, and the strengths and weaknesses of the MGP model. Conclusion: MGP makes mothers and midwives feel comfortable with the health services, because mothers get receive integrated services with midwives whom they know and midwives can improve their quality of life by being able to replace co-midwife who also knows patients. Thus the quality of service and patient satisfaction will increase, and MGP good to be applied in Indonesia.
