Non-Medical Aid: First-time Moms

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. We have created a checklist to ensure that you have everything in order before you start your pre-admission journey.

View the checklist here of what is required from you before when you can book your bed.

Information for Non-Medical Aid clients

ALL babies must be registered on a medical aid before birth. This would require a parent to join a medical aid prior to birth and arrange that baby be added as a dependent post birth. You may enquire with us to direct you to someone who can advise you.

Your stay can be in either a Private Luxury Family Room, or a Semi-Private Room and you may choose to give birth with either an Independent Midwife or the Genesis Staff/In-House Midwives.  The deposit is required by week 36 of pregnancy.

If a mom wants to try for a VBAC, (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) she needs to make a consult to check if she is a suitable candidate for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean). Moms can only try for a VBAC after one previous caesarean. The midwife will assess her and if her pregnancy is low-risk she may continue her maternity journey and birth at Genesis Maternity Clinic. VBAC Moms can not use the in-house midwives for their antenatal care. The deposit is the same as for for first-time mothers.

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.
