Abstract: The incidence of domestic violence (DV) is more often experienced by women, especially wives. The incidence of domestic violence has a negative impact on women's health, especially during pregnancy and childbirth. The aim of the study was to explore the health problems faced by pregnant women victims of DV in two traditional villages (Pedungan Village and Nongan Village), Bali Province. The research method is qualitative research with a phenomenological approach. The number of samples is 31 pregnant women in Traditional Village of Pedungan and 33 pregnant women in Traditional Village of Nongan. The study was conducted from May to the end of October 2015. The instruments of data collection used in-depth interview guides and focus group discussion guidelines. The results showed that the incidence of domestic violence during pregnancy was more experienced by pregnant women in Nongan Village (45.45%) compared to pregnant women in Pedungan Village (32.26%). DV history is generally not only one type, but multiple or even a pregnant woman who experiences two or more types of violence by her husband. More pregnant women in Nongan Village claimed to have been victims of DV compared to pregnant women in Pedungan village (15 people / 45.4% vs 10 people / 32.3%). The more violence that is experienced is emotional violence in the form of hurting the respondent's feelings, insulting and intimidating. The form of sexual violence in the form of a husband forces sexual intercourse when the respondent does not want and feels afraid of being beaten if she refuses sexual intercourse. Pregnant women said that their husband regard that wives as possessions or husband's property. Efforts need to be made that are directly program for DV prevention through the approach of traditional leaders in the provision of customary sanctions for DV perpetrators to provide a deterrent effect.
