This study aims to determine the effect of the use of video tutorial learning media on prenatal stimulation in Puskesmas (community health center) of Cirebon District. The research uses Quasi-experimental design with pretest-posttest group approach. The samples were chosen using purposive sampling technique. The samples consist of 40 respondents divided into two groups i.e. 20 respondents in the intervention group and 20 respondents in the control group.
