Independent Midwives

“The greatest joy is to become a mother, the second greatest is to be a midwife.”
~ Norwegian Proverb

Genesis Maternity Clinic operates as a base for several Independent Midwives. They are passionate about moms, babies and birth because they believe in the strength of women and the natural abilities of their bodies. Midwives understand that most women want to be empowered through birth to give themselves and give their babies the best possible start in life and the safest experience possible. Please note that their fees/packages are separate from the Genesis facility fees. 

Independent Midwives are midwives that work in their own private practice, assessing the mother and her baby throughout her antenatal consultations, as she births her baby, as well as postnatally. Not only does the family benefit from a caregiver that is both nurturing and trustworthy, but also a professional who is aware of the latest research, and who knows when technology is necessary. An Independent Midwife is a specialist in natural birth and has the skills to monitor women and their babies through pregnancy, labour, birth and into parenthood. As well as her clinical expertise, she shares with you the desire for a healthy and empowering birth experience and uses her knowledge and experience to guide you towards this goal. To research more about what a midwife is and to learn more about the benefits and evidence for using a midwife for your antenatal consultations and birth, please continue reading here.

How to choose an Independent Midwife

Just like any other medical caregiver in private practice, you would need to choose your midwife by going through the list below and contacting a midwife of your choice. Please do not only wait for an Open Day to choose an Independent Midwife, as most of our midwives cannot predict if they can attend, as their priority is to be with their clients first and foremost. It is important you start your care as soon as possible.

Once you have booked with the midwife of your choice, she will assess you and your baby, guide you, educate you and refer you to any tests, scans and referrals to book with the Genesis affiliated Ob/Gyn. A midwife is a medical expert and you will have all the same vitals checked, the same as you would with an Ob/Gyn. 

Your midwife will guide and educate you every step of the way.  

The Independent  Midwives contact details below offer more insight into their services. Although most midwives work similarly, it is important to feel a certain connection with the midwife of your choice, as she will be by your side throughout your antenatal consultations and your birth. The antenatal schedule is a guide and it may differ as per each expectant mother’s individual needs. Most importantly, choose a midwife as soon as possible as most midwives only take on a certain amount of clients per month to ensure individualised care. 
We offer Open Days on certain dates, whereby you can view the clinic facilities,  meet a few of the Independent Midwives and some of the supportive services  such as Doulas. Often your midwife can offer a short tour at your consultations, but this is dependent on your midwife’s schedule, please enquire directly with her.
