The content analysis used Open Code software. Results: Four themes were identified in this study: 1) High workload of Midwives, 2) CHVs have easy access to mothers, 3) CHVs are accepted by the community, and 4) CHVs can monitor maternal health in the community. Besides their main tasks, village midwives in Indonesia also provide many programs at Primary Health Centers.
