Description Background: Playing or studying in a plea­sant atmosphere is an important factor in edu­cation. Through edutainment, pregnant women can facilitate understanding and be able to influence and motivate people's behavior. Learning with the Edutainment method should be able to provide positive benefits to pregnant women so that they can make learning right on target not only cognitive but also affective. Health promotion using a learning method called Edutainment which is expected to pro­vide new solutions in the process of providing education to pregnant women.Subjects and Method: This was an expe­rimental study using pretest and posttest control group design with a randomize con­trolled trial (RCT). In this design, two groups were randomly selected so that an experimental group was formed with a sample size of 100 pregnant women who were treated with the edutainment method on preg­nancy care and a control group with a sample size of 100 preg­nant women who were treated with the con­ventional method. The dependent variable was the knowledge, attitude, and action. The inde­pen­dent variable was Edutainment. Data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed using different test analysis on STATA 13.Results: Knowledge about self-care before pregnant women after receiving edutainment (Mean = 40.54; SD = 2.18) was better than not getting edutainment (Mean= 39.32; SD= 2.26), and the difference was statistically signi­ficant (p <0.001). Because there are differences before the intervention (baseline), to determine the effect of edutainment on knowledge, it is necessary to compare the difference in know­ledge scores between before and after edutain­ment in the edutainment group compared with the control group. Attitudes about self-care among pregnant women after receiving edu­tain­ment (Mean = 44.15; SD = 1.40) were better than those without edutainment (Mean= 42.28; SD= 2.87), and the difference was statistically significant (p <0.001). Self-care measures for pregnant women after receiving edutainment (Mean= 45.53; SD= 0.74) were better than those without edutainment (Mean= 42.57; SD= 2.58), and the difference was statistically signi­ficant (p <0.001).Conclusion: Edutainment is effective to increase the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (behavior, actions) of pregnant women about self-care for pregnancy.Keywords: edutainment, pregnancy care, health educationCorrespondence: Shalsabilla Tiara Firdausia.Masters Program in Public Health, Universitas Sebelas Maret.
