Maternity

If you are an expectant mother, you have probably been searching for the best maternity hospitals in Kenya to bring forth your bundle of joy into the world.

There are two paths in which a child comes to this World after a nine-month stay in its mother’s womb and that could either be via Cesarean Section popular as CS or the vaginal birth common as the normal birth.

A cesarean section could be done as a matter of emergency when the life of the expectant mother or the child she is carrying is at risk or simply when the expectant woman chooses it as a means of delivering her child.

Vaginal birth, on the other hand, is what has always existed before the coming of technology and happens when the mother is due for delivery after nine months which could happen anytime between 38 and 40 weeks.

Whether cesarean of vaginal birth, the delivery process results in motherhood, a responsibility so demanding yet quite fulfilling.

The process of an expectant mother delivering does not come without its share of pain irrespective of the path one chooses, the only choice is whether one prefers to have the pain before delivering the child or after.

In the olden days, our grandmothers delivered at home and most cases were successful, the same cannot be said in recent times as risks have increased pushing women to seek not just hospital assistance but the best maternity services.

Today, one can choose according to their budget and preference which hospital they wish to deliver at, ranging from as affordable as 250 shillings to as expensive as 400,000 shillings in Kenya.

The cost of maternity services is dependent on whether the facility is private or public, and if private, the kind of services it can offer dependent on its resources, both physical and human.
