Abstract

Maternal Mortality Rate in Bojonegoro Regency in 2019 ranked second in East Java, namely 146.64 per
100,000 Live Births. Meanwhile, in the first semester of 2020, there were 24 maternal deaths. This research
was conducted to see the relationship between the mother’s status is too young, too old, too much, and too
close (4T) to Maternal Death. This study analyzed quantitative secondary data for the first semester of 2020
in Bojonegoro Regency using the Risk Ratio (RR) calculation with a significance level of 95% CI. A mother
with age too old will likely cause maternal death with RR= 0.443. Mothers with too many children have a
risk of dying with RR= 3.153. A mother with the child’s birth spacing is too close has a risk of dying with
RR= 1.05. Analysis of maternal mortality based on mothers with 4T who use contraception is that they risk
breaking with RR = 19.3, 5. The status of mothers with 4T can be a risk factor for maternal mortality, so it
is necessary to monitor and prevent it with a family planning program.
