Currently, the maternal mortality rate (MMR) in Indonesia is still high at 305/100,000 births. The high rate of MMR can be caused by the quality of health services, especially by the village midwife as the spearhead of antenatal care which is still low. Factors that may affect the performance of the village midwives such as a leadership style and a job involvement. The research method is quantitative with cross-sectional study and sample size 95 village midwives spread to 13 public health center in Hulu Sungai Tengah District. The sampling technique used multistage random sampling. The data obtained were analyzed by the Partial Least Square (PLS) test at the 95% level of significance. The results showed that the leadership style of midwife coordinators had an effect on the performance of village midwife on the antenatal care through the job involvement (p=0.089). Leadership style is not significant to have a direct effect on the performance of village midwife on the antenatal care (p=-0.078). The conclusion of this research is to achieve a good performance can be pursued through high job involvement without being influenced by the leadership style, but to form a high involvement of work required a democratic leadership style of midwife coordinators.
