The purpose of this study was to determine the perspective of first trimester pregnant women about the role of husbands in fulfilling nutrition. The research design used in this study is qualitative phenomenology. The sampling technique used in this study was purposive sampling with 10 participants. Data collection is done by in-depth interviews using a recording device. The age of all participants ranged from 20-35 years. The majority of participants were in parity 1 (one). The majority of participants are Muslim. The majority of the participants' last education was high school. The majority of the ethnic groups participating in the husband are Javanese, and the majori ty of the participants' work is the IRT (Housewife). The results showed that there were four categories of expectant mothers' perspectives on the role of husbands in fulfilling nutrition during the first trimester, namely fulfilling the desires of the mother, serving mother's favorite food, accompanying the mother, reminding them to consume nutritious food. The results of the study showed that a small proportion of participants had supported the role of the husband.
