Private Clients

"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear.'

Private Client Information:

  • Private clients are welcome. Our facility fees do not cover the costs of the private midwives and other third parties.
  • You should obtain details of the billing and fees charged for by private midwives, obstetricians and anaesthetists and any other external other service providers.
  • Please note that women who have had a previous C-section and would like to try for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean), will need to use the services of a private midwife.
  • 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.
  • If you have a normal delivery, a part of the deposit fee will be used to cover the cost of the hospital fee for a natural birth. The balance of the deposit will be refunded to you.
  • You must have booked with a private midwife or with our in-house 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.
  • The deposit partially covers the fees in the event of an emergency Caesarean Section as well as the Paediatrician fee. Following a natural birth, the balance of the deposit will be refunded.
  • 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.
