Prevention Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) is an effort to prevent HIV/AIDS from pregnancy, childbirth, until breastfeeding. However, stigma and discrimination are still the biggest obstacles. This study aimed to find out the stigmatization of midwives in pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS in Indonesia. This qualitative research used a case study approach. Data collection was done by focus group discussion technique in midwives group in hospitals, Public Health Centers, and private practice then analyzed with content analysis. This study showed that the most stigmatization of pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS was found in midwives’ private practice. They considered pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS as someone who had deviant behavior, and assuming HIV/AIDS was a dangerous virus. In conclusion, birth equity had not realized in the midwifery services of pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS in Indonesia. We recommend that midwives are given a correct understanding of HIV/AIDS, through seminars, or training.
