Study objective To determine the indications of C/S as a mode of delivery among mothers at the Mater Hospital, Kenya. Methods Cross-sectional study design was used to collect data from the respondents. Results The indications of C/S included mal-presentation (p=0.006), fetal distress, (p=0.0001), previous scar (p=0.001), hypertension (0.0001), failed induction (p=0001), prolonged labor (p=0.0001), previous bad outcome (p=0.0001) and gestational diabetes (p=0.0001).
