Background: Maternal mortality rate in Indonesia is still high. The three most causes of maternal death are hypertension in pregnancy, postpartum hemorrhage followed by infection. Eclampsia is one of the  pregnancy hypertension which has negative impact to mother and fetus. Early detection can prevent maternal death by pregnancy hypertention.  Proteinuria is one of the signs used for early detection of eclampsia and other pregnancy disorders.

Objective: In order to determine the status of proteinuria in pregnancy in Southwest Sumba District, East Nusa Tenggara in 2016.

Method: This is a cross sectional study conducted in 3 villages, namely Weetebula, Hombakaripit, and Palla. A total of 97 pregnant women participated in the study. The proteinuria status was examined using dipstick urine. Hypothesis testing of the relationship between gravida, hypertension status, age group, and trimester with the proteinuria occurrence was performed using Mann Whitney test

Results: A total of 89.5% of respondents showed positive proteinuria and other 10% were negative. Of those with positive proteinuria, 39,1% were plus minus, 48,3% were positive 1, and 12,7% were positive 2. Respondents who suffered from hypertension counted for 4,1%, 1 of whom suffered from preeclampsia.

Conclusions: The vast majority of respondents showed proteinuria, but the hypothesis test results indicated that gravida, hypertension, age and trimester status were not associated with proteinuria.
