Abstract:

Lamaze Certified Childbirth Education was an unknown entity in Kenya, East Africa, just a few years ago. Today, programs are firmly established in two leading private hospitals in Nairobi and gaining credibility in the region's medical community. Prepared childbirth is finding its place in the lives of the rapidly urbanizing African society. Implementation of Lamaze techniques in antenatal programs serving women outside the private sector is taking place as Kenyan midwives work toward their certification as Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators.

Keywords: Africa; childbirth education; cross-cultural implementation
