Afriyana Siregar*, Tonny C. Maigoda and Arie Krisnasary

ABSTRACT

Maternal mortality problems in pregnant and gave birth women are a major problem in developing countries. The study aimed to identify the influence of nutrition consultation of a balanced diet on macronutrient, weight gain, mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) and hemoglobin (Hb) level of the first trimester of a pregnant woman in puskesmas of Bengkulu. Pre-experimental research design with one group pretest-posttest was conducted on 32 pregnant women on the first trimester in puskesmas of Bengkulu. The result showed p-value for energy, protein, fat and haemoglobin were 0,089; 0,098; 0,254; 0,743, respectively, which means there is no effect of nutrition consultation on energy intake, protein, fat and Hb. The result on carbohydrate, MUAC and weight gain were 0,004, 0.015 and 0.001 respectively means there were an effect of nutrition consultation on carbohydrate intake, MUAC and weight gain. Manova test results obtained P> 0.05, means there is no difference between the intake of macronutrients (energy, protein, fat, and carbohydrates), weight gain, mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) and hemoglobin (HB) before and after nutrition consultation on pregnant women in Puskesmas of Bengkulu.
