Antenatal Care at Genesis Maternity Clinic

 

You have three options for your Antenatal Care:

Each mother chooses to birth under the care of one of the private midwives, practising at Genesis Clinic and clients birth in a private Luxury Family Room. You can also choose to birth with our staff midwives in our In-House Birth Unit. Midwives offer safe, science-based, and comprehensive maternity care to low-risk women.

You have all the access to all of the same examinations, testing, supervision, and referrals that would be available under the care of a gynaecologist. Your appointments with one our affiliated gynaecologists will ensure that you are low risk and if in the event you may need a caesarean section, will perform the surgery together with a medical team of the anaesthetist, paediatrician and nursing staff.

Antenatal care with midwives differs from obstetric care in many ways, and several aspects that stand out for our clients are - longer visits, ample opportunity to ask questions and further your education, a compassionate, trusting relationship with your team, postpartum home visits and committed breastfeeding support. At the same time, midwifery care includes careful monitoring and nurturing of the well-being of both mother and baby prenatally, during the birth, and throughout the postpartum period.
