Booking Procedure

At Genesis Maternity Clinic we are dedicated to providing safe, affordable maternity care and assisting you to have a positive birth experience. We understand the importance of the choices you are about to make regarding where and how to have your baby. Birth is one of the most enriching experiences a woman can have, empowering you and your partner into your new role as parents.

Before you can book a bed at Genesis Maternity Clinic, you will need to have had your first antenatal consultation with a midwife. This is so that the midwife can assess your pregnancy as low-risk and that you may continue your maternity journey for a birth at Genesis Clinic. Once you get the confirmation that you are low risk, the booking procedure must be completed by week 36. Bookings can only be done at reception, and mom needs to be there in person, (and the main member of the medical aid if it is not you) to fill out all the necessary admission forms. We do not process these documents online. Please bring along your ID book, medical aid card, as well as your pre-authorisation number. We have created a checklist to ensure that you have everything in order before you start your pre-admission journey.

Please note that Genesis Clinic has the facility for 14 beds, which comprise of eight private rooms with water birth baths and one room without a bath (recovery room). We have four semi-private rooms and two labour and birth rooms within the Semi-Private Unit. The clinic reserves the right to move a client into the recovery room if the space is required for another birthing client.If a client has booked for a private room, but the private facility is full, she will birth in the semi-private unit and then move back to the private room as soon as this becomes available. In the case of her having to stay in the semi-private room, for the full duration of her stay, she will get the R1 650.00 private room fee refunded. Although this does not happen often the nature of birth is that this could happen. This is in the interest of all Genesis moms getting the birthing experience they deserve.We thank you for understanding.
