Before the introduction of free maternity services in Kenya, less than half the women in the country were delivering in hospitals. At the moment about 2 of 3 women giving birth, do so in a hospital. It is a great improvement that was meant to see a drop in child deaths. However, opening the doors for women to give birth in hospital did not come hand in hand with employment of more staff. The very same staff – who were already overstretched before 2013 – are expected to take on more clients – and operate efficiently.
