A new baby can be costly for anyone living in Nairobi. Though you may plan for expected costs, the unexpected can, and often does, occur. The most common of these is an emergency caesarian section, which can cost anywhere from Kshs.150,000/= to Kshs.300,000/= at a private hospital.
The Avenue ABC Maternity Package takes some of the risk out of having a baby. Along with other benefits of the ABC Package, vacuum delivery, difficult deliveries requiring a specialist, and emergency caesarian sections are fully covered.
A is for Antenatal Care
Avenue Healthcare doctors will take you through your pregnancy safely, allowing as many visits to the AHC antenatal clinic as you want or need.
B is for Birth
When you are ready to deliver, you will receive guaranteed admission to the Avenue Hospital Maternity Ward, where, after an assessment by the Avenue Healthcare OPD Doctor, our team of experienced midwives will deliver your baby or call for expert assistance from our panel of highly qualified obstetricians in case of complications.
If an emergency caesarian is required, or if an obstetrician is needed for any reason, the costs are fully catered for under the ABC Package. That includes caesarian-related obstetrician bills, anaesthetist and paediatrician charges, drugs, theatre costs, bed and nursery charges for as long as you and Baby need to stay.
Discharge drugs and a follow up visit to remove stitches or just for check up are also included.
C is for Child Care
During Baby’s first year, all visits to the Avenue Hospital Well Baby Clinic are free of charge, and include vaccinations according to the KEPI regime. (These are BCG, Oral Polio, Measles, Diptheria, Pertussis and Tetanus.) Other vaccinations are available at a 20% discount to all ABC Package Babies up to the age of 5 years.
The total cost of the Avenue ABC Maternity Package, including unlimited visits to the AHC Antenatal Clinic, antenatal profile, obstetric scan, one obstetrician visit, multivitamins and ferrous sulphate, delivery, whether normal, vacuum, or by caesarian section, a follow up postnatal visit, Well Baby Clinic for a year and KEPI vaccines for the baby is Kshs.130,000 /=
