Performance is the appearance of personal work and professional groups. The performance of a midwife is also influenced by many factors, namely internal factors and external factors. The public health center is the leading service unit and can directly reach the community, taking responsibility in the field of health not only in the curative and rehabilitative field but more focused on the promotion and preventive fields. This study was conducted on 100 midwives who worked in public health center in Surabaya City in the period of May-July 2018 by using a questionnaire that had proven its validity and reliability. Variables in age, education, employment status, years of service, and workload as independent variables and performance as dependent variable. Data were analyzed by logistic regression test. The results showed that midwives who had poor performance were 65%. The performance of midwives has a significant relationship with age (p = 0.01), employment status (p = 0.022) and workload (p = 0.000), but there was no significant relationship with education (p = 0.137), working period (p = 0.581). In conclusion, the performance of midwives in the public health center was still poor due to the heavy workload, it was recommended to review the workload of midwives in the public health center in order to improve the performance of midwives.
