Globally, there were 2.6 million newborn deaths in 2016 with 7000 newborns dying each day from pregnancy related complications [1, 2]. The majority of these deaths are preventable through the provision of quality of care during pregnancy and childbirth . In Kenya, the neonatal mortality rate is 22 deaths per 1000 live births (2010–2014), with over 55% of these deaths in the first month of life . Although neonatal mortality has decreased over time to 33 deaths per 1000 live births from 1999 to 2003, significant acceleration is needed for the country to meet its Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of reducing neonatal mortality to below 12 deaths per 1000 live births by 2030.
