A newborn child is considered a bundle of joy and the excitement and feeling of fulfillment experienced by those who procreate with the intention of having a baby is overwhelming.

However, a pregnancy and a healthy delivery for both mother and infant require the need to involve healthcare providers from the time the lady realizes she has conceived all the way to delivery and after.

The process of having a baby is hence a journey that requires one to walk with a health expert who in turn guides them on the dos and don’ts to ensure successful results.

Approximately 10 to 15 percent of pregnancies across the world end in miscarriage, or before 28 weeks into the pregnancy, this also puts the life of the mother at risk which could be reduced if interventions are made early enough.

Between November 2017 and October 2018, according to data drawn from Kenya’s health information system, Kenya lost about 10,241 newborns, affordable and available maternity care could play a big role in minimizing this number.

Maternity care in Kenya is however yet to be at its best as some of the women who cannot afford private health will choose to deliver at home, putting their lives and those of their unborn children at risk.

After publishing Top 10 Best Maternity Hospitals In Kenya Regardless of Cost, the requests to publish a list of maternity hospitals that provide great services and are at the same time affordable were overwhelming.

As you shop around for the best maternity care that will fit into that budget that has had you saving since you realized you had conceived, below is a list of hospitals voted by mothers across social media for having rendered great services during their own delivery.

The list is formulated according to the number of times a hospital was recommended when the question was posed on social media.

Kijabe Mission Hospital and Jacaranda Maternity hospital were overwhelmingly recommended by mothers.

Key pointers noticed are that the mothers recommended the maternity hospitals because of the following reasons:

  • Maternity resources, both human and physical as this built their confidence and made them feel safe to deliver at the facility
  • The cleanness of the maternity from the beds, wards, and washrooms was heavily a determiner
  • The nature of the maternity’s staffed, are they friendly, ready to answer questions and provide guidance politely?
  • The cost of delivery in the maternity as it determined how affordable the services are for the mothers and whether they could afford, incase became an emergency
  • The accessibility of the maternity hospitals and the distance to be covered by individual mothers

Kijabe Mission Hospital, which had the highest number of recommendations charge 65,000 shillings for Caesarean Section (CS), 50,000 shillings for the general ward when one undergoes CS, 75,000 shillings for CS and the semiprivate room and 150,000 shillings for CS and the private room.

Pumwani Maternity Hospital was also mentioned with those recommending the facility saying the maternity had actually improved massively under the new County leadership.

Those that mentioned Pumwani Maternity noted that the facility was now clean and orderly through the staff would do with improving their attitude towards the mothers.

Other facilities recommended, though not by as many people as the above, include Kalimoni Mission Hospital which accepts NHIF’s Linda Mama cover and clinics are charged at 1,500 shillings with CS costing 28,000 shillings and the natural delivery costing 11,000 shillings.

In Makueni County, Mother and Child hospital was recommended while in Nyeri, Outspan hospital was recommended, in Embu Tenri hospital was recommended while in Mombasa, Premiere hospital was recommended.
