There are still many pregnant women and their families who are unable to do early detection of high risk pregnancies. The purpose of this study was to develop a family empowerment model for the early detection ability of high-risk pregnancies.An explanatory survey research with a cross sectional study approach. The study population was the family of pregnant women in the Surabaya area who were taken using the rule of thumb with a sample size of 120 respondents using systematic random sampling. The latent variables in this study are personal factors, cognitive behavior, resource factors, interpersonal, basic values (Fillial Values), commitment, and family ability in early detection of high risk pregnancies, as measured by using a questionnaire. Latent variables that affect family empowerment consist of data analysis using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) -Partial Least Squares (PLS).The results showed that the family empowerment model for the early detection ability of high-risk pregnancy was a fit model. This refers to the results of the goodness of fit test. Personal factors towards interpersonal (T statistics = 10,301; P = 0,000), interpersonal towards Fillial Value (T statistics = 13,501; P = 0,000), Fillial Value for commitment (T statistics = 9,495; P = 0,000), family commitment to early detection ability of high risk pregnancy (T statistics = 3,840; P = 0,000).The results of this study provide information about family empowerment models in high-risk pregnancies so that they can be used as a reference in preparing midwifery care plans in cases of maternal emergencies for high-risk pregnant women.
