In Kenya, pregnant women continue to experience challenges in attaining the recommended minimum four antenatal care (ANC4) visits, having institutional delivery under a skilled birth attendant (SBA) and accessing PNC services within 2 to 3 days post-delivery. In 2018, the Kenya Health and Information Systems (KHIS) reported that only 49% of pregnant women in Kenya completed ANC4, 65% had SBA and 21% received PNC services within 2 to 3 days post-delivery. Data from Kuresoi South and North sub-counties, Nakuru County, indicate that only 22% and 41% of mothers accessed ANC4 and SBA, respectively, while 43% of the mothers received PNC services. These statistics are significantly lower than the national average.
