Maternity Africa’s Kivulini Maternity Centre is located in rural Northern Tanzania, near the city of Arusha.  It opened officially in June 2018, and provides a spectrum of good, evidence-based maternal healthcare services.  These include antenatal care, intrapartum care, postnatal care and comprehensive family planning counselling and treatment.  24-hour Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (CEmONC) is available on site. 

At Kivulini Maternity Centre, Maternity Africa also provides surgery for ladies suffering from obstetric fistula and other birth-induced injuries. 

Kivulini Maternity Centre is equipped with its own laboratory, theatre, pharmacy, wards accommodating up to 56 beds, administrative offices and staff accommodation.
