Important Information

 Non-Medical Aid clients are welcome. Medical insurance clients are considered private clients. If a letter of guarantee is supplied from the medical insurance company, the client does not need to pay a deposit. Any shortfall however is payable.

 You may choose to birth with a Private Midwife or a Genesis Staff Midwife, in either the Private Luxury Family Room, or the In-House Birth Unit. Respective fees apply.

 The natural delivery deposit is calculated on a 48 hour stay. Should discharge be within 24 hours from time of admission, the balance will be refunded to the client.

 All private patients are charged using fixed fees. These assume that there are no complications and that the length of stay is not exceeded. In the event of complications, fees will be billed accordingly.

 You must have booked with a Private Midwife or with our Genesis Staff Midwives before booking your bed at Genesis Maternity Clinic.

Bookings are done at our reception, where you will be asked to complete the necessary forms and provide your medical history. (We cannot do this online).

 Bookings must be done by 36th week of pregnancy.

 Unfortunately admission will be declined if the deposit payment has not been made in full.

 Please note that women who have had a previous C-section and would like to try for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean), must use the services of a private midwife. We do not do VBAC's after two C-sections. Read here for more information about choosing a Private Midwife for your maternity care.
