Booking Procedure

Before a mom can book her bed at Genesis Maternity Clinic, she will need to have had her first antenatal consultation with a midwife. This is so that the midwife can assess her pregnancy as low-risk and may continue her maternity journey and for a birth at Genesis Clinic. Once you have been confirmed as low risk, you can start the booking procedure. Bookings can only be done at reception, and you need to be there in person to fill out all the admission forms, as we cannot process these documents online. As Genesis is a low risk facility with many payment options, we have created a checklist to ensure that you have everything in order before you start your pre-admission journey.
