Birthing at Genesis

Giving birth is one of life’s most incredible and empowering experiences.

At Genesis Maternity Clinic we are grateful for the privilege of taking part in the miracle of a new life entering into the world. 

We believe in a woman’s ability to create and nurture life and that giving birth is a natural, healthy life experience. We therefore provide care and support to mothers-to-be and their partners throughout the pregnancy, birth and after the birth of their child. 

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 confirm that yours is a low risk pregnancy. However, should a caesarean section become necessary the gynaecologist will perform the procedure supported by an anaesthetist, paediatrician and nursing staff.

Antenatal care with midwives differs from obstetric care in many ways. The care features longer visits, ample opportunity to ask questions and further your education, a compassionate, trusting relationship with your team, 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 postnatal period.
