The instrument used in this study was the Maternal Self-Efficacy Scale. Results: The results showed that of the 15 participants, the mean pre-test and mean post-test were 1.73 and 3.46. Wilcoxon test results showed before and after being given health coaching support by peer with p-value 0,000 < α = 0.05, so Ho was rejected and Ha was accepted. This showed that there was a significant influence due to the provision of health coaching support by peer coaching methods on infant care. Conclussions: There was an increase in parenting self-efficacy on infant care in mothers who married at early age. It is expected that parents who married at early age could change their behavior and have confidence in parenting.
