Two indicators reflect the state of health status in an area: the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) and Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). The majority of maternal and neonatal deaths can be obtained, through Antenatal Care (ANC), with intervention in the form of early treatment of pregnancy complications. The research design we used was a correlation study. The sampling technique used a total sample of 262 pregnant women. Results Based on the analysis using chi-square obtained p-value <0.05, which means that there is a relationship between the age of pregnant women and ANC compliance (p = 0.006). The highest level of ANC visit compliance was found in pregnant women who were in the productive age group, namely opening, 93 pregnant women (35.5%), followed by the elderly group of 11 pregnant women (4.2%) and young age of 4 pregnant women (1.5%). Therefore, health workers are expected to play a role in ANC services and expect pregnant women to be more obedient in carrying out pregnancy services.
