Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.” ~ Virginia DiOrio

Bringing a child into the world is one of life’s most incredible and empowering events and at Genesis Maternity Clinic we enrich this experience by offering you well-researched, informed choices. We offer a range of supportive services, classes and workshops to support you throughout your pregnancy and birth journey. Genesis Maternity Clinic considers education and knowledge a vital component of your journey during pregnancy.  Your wellness, both physically and mentally is paramount.

As part of our holistic, client-centered approach to care, the supportive services are facilitated by professionals, who are experts in their field and whom we endorse. 

If you would like to stay up to date with the latest events and tours, as well as useful tips for pregnancy and birth, then follow us on our Genesis social media community, we are on Facebook and Instagram, we would love to see your there!

Please book the services and courses on offer as per the contact details provided by the professionals. They work in private practice and therefore Genesis cannot book on their behalf, with the exception of the Tour bookings.

  • Hypnobirthing Antenatal Course

    Genesis Maternity Clinic, 5 Northwold Drive. Corner of Jan Smuts and Northwold Drive, Saxonwold, Johannesburg.

    Genesis Maternity Clinic, 5 Northwold Drive. Corner of Jan Smuts and Northwold Drive, Saxonwold, Johannesburg.

    The Confident HypnoBirthing Antenatal Course teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, and how to free yourself of harmful emotions, like fear, that cause muscles to become unyielding, which causes pain. Theoni is one of only a few certified HypnoBirthing practitioners in South Africa and she has 10 years of experience in teaching this course.


    What is HypnoBirthing? The HypnoBirthing Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.   HypnoBirthing teaches you and your partner to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant, thereby lessening, even eliminating, discomfort and the need for medication. 


    Weekend Courses

    Friday: 18:30 to 20:30

     Saturday: 08:30 to 13:00

     Sunday: 08:30 to 13:00
