Private Midwife-led Birth, staying for 24 hours after the birth in the In-House Birth Unit.

The Birth Blessings fee structure is for all first and second-time mothers (the latter whom have had a normal birth), and are Private/ Non-Medical Aid clients. It is for those mothers that want to choose their own Private Midwife, instead of the Genesis Staff Midwife and who want to birth in our In-House Birth Unit, (this excludes moms who have had a caesarean section previously). A deposit of R10 670.000 is required for birthing in our In-House Birth Unit. (This excludes the fees for the Private Midwife and a Caesarean if needed). Couples will be supported by their chosen Private Midwife during the labour and birth of their baby.  Couples are welcome to bring along their own support team, such as a private doula. Moms stay over to rest and recuperate in a semi-private room for the duration of their stay at the Genesis In-House Birth Unit.

 *All private clients are required to put their baby on a Medical Aid before birth.
