High-risk pregnancy requires proper pregnancy care which focuses on the needs of pregnant women and minimizes the worst condition. Through early high-risk detection, midwives can provide appropriate midwifery care to pregnant women. The continuity of care is a philosophy of midwifery care that promotes continuous midwifery care from pregnancy to puerperium which aims to save the pregnancy at risk. Therefore, the pregnancy can be managed properly until the period of childbirth and puerperium. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of continuity of care for high birth rates. This study used observational studies. The samples were 46 risk pregnant women at Public Health Center of Kaliwungu, Kudus chosen through purposive sampling technique. Further, mentoring by midwives/continuity of care from the second trimester to the postpartum period was conducted. Pregnant women were, later on, managed and assessed every time there were physical changes both regarding deteriorating conditions and improving conditions. The data analysis was done using chi-square test by observing the babies born after the COC program was conducted. The results of this study reveal that pregnant women with risks who get mentoring/COC have a different tendency on the babies born, with on p value of 0.000. There is a significance effect of COC on high-risk pregnant women in the way that they have a tendency to give birth to babies under normal conditions.
