Gift Kiti will discuss whether having continuous support during labor improves person-centered maternity care during childbirth among women in rural Kenya. The study concludes that women who have continuous labor support during childbirth are more likely to have improved person-centered maternity care (PCMC). Efforts to promote PCMC should thus include continuous labor support. This paper extends the evidence on the role of continuous labor support on women’s experiences using a validated measure that focuses on the aspects of PCMC such as dignity and respect and communication.
