Each family has certain considerations in regulating the distance of the child. Some factors that influence the decision-making when to increase the number of children include economic maturity, age of spouse, socio-cultural influence, environment, occupation and health status of partners (Susan, 2006). However, not all couples of childbearing age know the benefits of setting the distance pregnancy for the long term, so there are still many fertile age couples who have children with a distance that is too close or too far away. The purpose of this study was to analyze the factors that influence the determination of gestational distance in couples of childbearing age.
The method used in this study is quantitative, with cross sectional. The population and sample of the study were women of childbearing age. Sampling is done by purposive sampling technique.
The results of this study show that maternal age and education influence in decisions to determine pregnancy distance, whereas parity and contraceptive methods have no effect on the determination of gestational distance. Thus, health workers must participate actively in providing maternal and child health education to couples of childbearing age.
