Midwives are one of the health workers who provide child and maternal health (CMH) services and family planning. At present, most of the recording of midwife services is still managed conventionally by manual book keeping. It is less effective and efficient which causes the workload to increase, the information retrieval process is quite long and the risk of missing important data is likely to occur frequently. On the other hand, maternal patients are required to visit the midwife directly if they want to know the information on the progress of the pregnancy and their child. Based on these facts, a CMH information system was built that was accessible to midwives and parents. The information system developed consists of two integrated applications, namely web-based applications for midwives and mobile applications for parents. The web application facilitates midwives to record transactions, make reports, and deliver information to patients. While the mobile application makes it easier for parents to monitor the development of maternal and child health and other information provided by midwives. The system was developed using the water-fall software development model. The test results using the black-box test method indicate that the CMH system has been able to meet the user's functional requirements.
