Independent Midwives in Private Practice

Please let us introduce the Independent Midwives in Private Practice. Genesis Maternity Clinic operates as an operating base for a several independent midwives. We are passionate about moms, babies and birth because we believe in the strength of women and the natural abilities of their bodies. We understand that most women want to be empowered through birth to give themselves and their babies the best possible start in life and the safest experience possible. 

Independent midwives are midwives that work in their own private practice caring for the mother throughout her antenatal consultations, as she births her baby as well as after the birth by supporting the family. 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 - when to use it and when not to.

The goal of the midwife is the health and wellbeing of mother and baby. She has the resources, wisdom and professional training to safely guide the family on the journey through pregnancy. In South Africa, a registered midwife qualified with a four year diploma or degree in general nursing and midwifery through an accredited South African Nursing Council (SANC) facility. Some midwives are advanced midwives and have completed an additional two year post basics qualification which is accredited by the SANC.

A qualified 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.
