In an effort to decrease the maternal mortality rate in Indonesia, the government implements a lot of strategies and health programs by means of continum of care. This article aims to determine the factors of mothers affecting sustainable maternal health services using the 2013 Riskesdasdata. Data analyses were done by calculating the difference in the percentage of coverage of health indicators in each district/city and continuing to find a model determining the relationship of maternalcharacteristics factors related to the continuation of maternal health care by logistic regression. The sustainability of maternal health service utilization in Indonesia is only 46%. The factors are the mother's education (OR = 1.79 and 2.58), the work of mothers (OR = 1.38), economic status (OR= 1.65), pregnancy status (OR = 1.33), method of delivery (OR = 0.71 and 0.37), complications of pregnancy (OR = 1.13), birth complications (OR = 0.79), the travel time to health facilities (OR = 0.61 and 1.59), age at delivery (OR = 1.23). The study reveals that continuity of maternal healthservices remain unsatisfactory. Government should pay more attention to improve the quality and access to maternal health services as to encourage mothers to sustain their health care.
