Latar belakang: Keberhasilan dalam memberikan asuhan kepada ibu pada periode kehamilan dan nifas ditentukan dari kemampuan memberikan asuhan pasien/klien secara komprehensif. Penilaian kebutuhan ibu hamil dan nifas terhadap asuhan yang komprehensif dapat dilihat melalui hasil pengukuran kualitas hidup.

Tujuan: Mengetahui perbedaan kualitas hidup ibu hamil dan nifas, ditinjau dari analisis karakteristik ibu dan rerata skor dari masing-masing domain kualitas hidup.

Metode: Penelitian ini menggunakan desain potong lintang. Sampel pada penelitian ini adalah 120 ibu hamil dan 102 ibu nifas. Pengambilan data dilakukan pada bulan September hingga November 2019, pada tiga Puskesmas Rawat Inap di Kota Yogyakarta. Alat pengumpulan data menggunakan kuisioner WHOQOL BREF versi Indonesia. Data yang telah diperoleh dianalisis dengan uji one way Anova dan uji Manova.

Hasil: Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa karakteristik yang berhubungan dengan kualitas hidup adalah tingkat pendidikan ibu hamil (terhadap seluruh domain kualitas hidup) dan paritas ibu hamil (terhadap domain kesehatan fisik). Rerata skor kualitas hidup pada ibu nifas dibandingkan dengan kualitas hidup ibu hamil secara konsisten pada seluruh domain menunjukkan nilai yang lebih rendah, namun perbedaan tersebut tidak bermakna secara statistik.

Kesimpulan: Kualitas hidup ibu hamil dan ibu nifas relatif sama dengan kecenderungan lebih rendah pada kualitas hidup ibu nifas
