The research used a cluster random sampling technique. The variables include community empowerment, health status, pregnant women nutritional status. Data analysis using structural equation modeling with parameter data estimation using software analysis of moment structures Version 21. Estimation of empowerment of society to health status with value 0.105, health status to nutritional status of pregnant women with value 0.020, community empowerment of nutritional status of pregnant women with value 3.690, empowerment of society to the nutritional status of the pregnant mother through health status with value 0.002, community empowerment to health status with value 0.105.
