Objective: To determine the quality of antenatal care received by pregnant women, and perceptions of pregnant women and antenatal care providers regarding antenatal care. Methods: A quantitative and qualitative study of cases of referred pregnant women in the Emergency Room (ER) of Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (RSCM) from 2017-2018 was conducted. Quantitative data was obtained by assessing the overall completeness of filling in the Maternal Child Health (MCH) book used to report the antenatal care received by the subjects. The completeness of antenatal care in the health facility was obtained using a checklist. Qualitative data was obtained by interviewing pregnant women and antenatal care providers in health facilities. Result: There were 1.442 cases of referred pregnant women in RSCM's ER for the year 2017-2018, of whom 820 possessed and could show their MCH Book. Pregnancy in adolescence below 20 years (9.1%) and pregnancy after age 35 (19.5%) were reported. Most pregnant women were well educated (74.3%), referred from hospital or clinic (57.6%), received antenatal care in a public health center (38.7%), were in labor (32%), and were in the third trimester of pregnancy (92%). All subjects presented an incomplete MCH book. Almost half had inadequate antenatal frequency (46%). The completeness of antenatal care components in health care was 90-100%. Qualitatively, the perceptions of mothers and antenatal care providers regarding quality of antenatal care, was inadequate. Conclusions: The quality of antenatal care in the case of referred pregnant women at the RSCM's ER based on MCH Book records did not meet the required standard.
