1 out of 4 pregnant women who experienced sleep disorders complained in the first trimester and increased to 75% in the third trimester. Sleep disturbance in pregnant women causes an increase in CRH levels in pregnancy.  Chronic stress will stimulate the activation of the HPA Axis. This process causes preterm labor and affects the Apgar Score of the baby. This study aims to determine the relationship between maternal sleep quality and infant Apgar Score at Bpm Hj. Desi Erafia and Hj. Yulma Sastri, Kerinci Regency in 2020. This type of research is descriptive correlational with a cross-sectional approach. The study was conducted from February to April at BPM Hj. Desi Erafia And Hj. Yulma Sastri, Kerinci Regency in 2020.The population of this study were all pregnant women who were recorded, namely 44 people. The research sample is a total sampling. The results showed that the low sleep quality was 55.3%, and the Apgar Score was not standard as much as 23.7%. The analysis showed a significant relationship between sleep quality and the Apgar Score with a p-value of 0.005 (p <0.05). So it is concluded that there is a significant relationship between sleep quality and the Apgar Score. It is hoped that health workers provide counseling for pregnant women to implement a good lifestyle, such as maintaining sleep quality and providing information about the importance of quality sleep.
