This is definitely one of the best maternity hospitals in Nairobi. The hospital was started in 1962 by the Sisters of Mercy which is a religious institute of Catholic women. The Sisters of Mercy originally came from Ireland and established a 60-bed general hospital in Kenya that mainly intended to serve low-class Kenyans who didn’t have the means to afford high-end medical care.

It was not until 1970 that the hospital opened a maternity unit to provide antenatal and postnatal care to poor Nairobi women. Since then the Mater Hospital has grown to be one of the best maternity hospitals in Nairobi.

Their maternity unit specializes in caring for mothers during pregnancy and childbirth. It also provides care for newborn infants and may act as a center for clinical training in midwifery and obstetrics.

The Hospital has several branches in Nairobi all of which offer maternity services in addition to general medical care.
