The whole idea of an active birth unit is to combine the benefits of labouring and birthing outside of the pressure of a hospital environment with the necessary advantage of having immediate and first class medical care at hand should complications arise. We therefore focus equally on the creation of comfortable, private rooms in a peaceful, natural setting and the provision of exceptional obstetric care and emergency facilities. Our goal, long term, includes the education of women on the benefits of natural childbirth, the support of new moms in all aspects of their recently acquired status such as baby-clinics, counselling, breastfeeding support and legal advice, and the fostering of a strong sense of support for women in the community.
Each mother will birth under the care of one of the private midwife practices working from the clinic. At the time of birth, her midwife will manage the labour and birth, with the support of the clinic’s staff midwives and nurses.
- Each mom stays in her own, beautifully appointed private room through the entire labour, birth and recuperation period. These rooms are large with king sized beds and cribs to accommodate rooming in, are decorated with a touch of style to create an environment of tranquillity and comfort and open on to their own enclosed, private gardens.
- Each room has an en suite bathroom with a birthing bath for labour as well as a shower for convenience.
- Visiting is at the discretion of mothers, with no visiting hours stipulated by the clinic itself.
- At Genesis Clinic, the environment and service is designed to make you feel comfortable, safe and enveloped in luxury while ensuring optimum care for you and your precious newborn.
- Please note that Genesis Clinic has eight private rooms with birthing baths and one shared room without a bath (recovery room). The clinic reserves the right to move a client who has had 24 hours post partum in her private room into the recovery room if the space is required for another birthing client. This is in the interest of all Genesis moms getting the birthing experience they deserve.
