Non-Medical Aid: Second-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.

The natural delivery deposit is calculated on a 48 hour stay. Should discharge be within 24 hours from time of admission, the balance will be refunded to the client. All non-medical aid clients are charged using fixed fees. These assume that there are no complications and that the length of stay is not exceeded. In the event of a Caesarean Section, fees will be billed accordingly and are payable on discharge.

*Please note that Genesis Clinic is a 14 bed facility which comprises two labour rooms, four semi private recovery rooms and eight fully private rooms with their own birthing baths. Our eight fully private rooms are our most popular choice and due to this we wish to remind our clients that they are available on a first come, first serve basis on the day of labour.  Because of this we only require payment for the private room of R1 650 to be made at the time of discharge. Should the private rooms be full our mommies in labour who wish to be in a fully private room, will be accommodated in our semi private unit until they can be moved to a private room if one becomes available.  The private room fee of R1 650 will then be payable on discharge as well.
