Introduction: The maternal mortality remains high in developing countries such as Indonesia. Three most common reasons for this incidence are hemorrhage, infection and eclampsia. Some of these conditions can be influenced by iron deficiency anemia (IDA). A lot of programs of nutrition have been provided by Indonesian government but nutrition of pregnant women is still a big problem in Indonesia. This study explored the nutritional status of pregnant village women in Banten Province, Indonesia and assessed which are the suitable interventions in dealing with nutrition problems amongst pregnant women especially in the rural area. Method: The design was a longitudinal descriptive study with operational study by empowerment the village midwives and cadre to intervene the nutrition of pregnant women in rural area. The measurements were focused on the rate of anemia, body mass index (BMI) and weight gain. Three stages were applied in this study with community development as intervention. Result: This study reported that some changes in the practices of midwives and cadres were apparent in which midwives building better rapport and cadres talked more about nutrition in community meetings after intervention. However, the intervention did not affect the overall nutritional status of the pregnant women and the intervention was not able to influence the community's health in the medium term in the intervention villages. Analysis and discussion: This study recommended to government and education institutions to improve the competencies of health care providers especially in communication skill.
