First-time Mothers Birthing with a Genesis Staff Midwife in our In-House Birth Unit.


*We kindly need to inform our private/non-medical aid clients that Genesis Maternity Clinic requires the upfront deposit of R28 330.00, which partially covers the fees for an emergency Caesarean section. Unfortunately admission will be declined if the deposit payment has not been made in full by 36 weeks of pregnancy.  Following a natural birth, the balance of the deposit will be refunded. Should a private client choose to birth in a Luxury Family Room, please view the fees here.

We have partnered with First Health Finance should you require financial assistance with your deposit. Please contact them directly on 0800 212 537 or www.fhf.co.za for more information. If you qualify for the full amount, the deposit payment falls away as First Health Finance pay us directly.
