To avoid stillbirths, women in Kenya bribe overworked doctors

fter Anne Khasakalla suffered two stillbirths in 2014 and 2015, she looked for a solution that would provide her with better healthcare.

Friends told her that pregnant women in Kenya have to pay bribes to doctors and nurses to escape long queues of mothers waiting to deliver their babies.

“During my first pregnancy, I was excited to be a mother and I could not wait to welcome my then expected newborn baby into this world,” the 34-year-old told Al Jazeera.

“I registered to give birth at [the government-run] Pumwani Maternity Hospital in Nairobi. I attended all the pre-natal clinic dates at the hospital, did an ultrasound scan and my baby was healthy.

“On my day of giving birth, I was disappointed as some women who came after me to the hospital [and] delivered their babies before me. I experienced prolonged labour lasting 18 hours from the time I was admitted to the facility’s maternity ward. The end return was a stillborn daughter.”

Khasakalla earns $30 a month selling fruits and vegetables in the streets of Nairobi.

Her second stillborn child was also a girl.

She represents about 34,000 Kenyan women who deliver stillborn babies each year, according to the World Health Organization.

She now has two healthy children – both of whom were delivered at the same hospital.
