All the public hospitals have maternity wards.

Al-Sabah Maternity Hospital, located just off Gamal Abdul Nasser Street in west Shuwaikh, provides a comprehensive range of antenatal, delivery and postnatal care and is probably one of the best maternity hospitals in the world. Al-Sabah Maternity is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including more than a hundred ICUs, and a highly trained and dedicated indigenous and expatriate staff.

The private hospitals also offer maternity care. All hospitals require sight of a couple’s marriage certificate for their records.
