Genesis Maternity Clinic


The 14-bed Genesis Maternity Clinic in Saxonwold, Johannesburg is a dedicated low risk midwife-led birthing unit specialising in active birthing where a mother’s birthing choices are respected.

Genesis Maternity Clinic provides an old worldly charm where comprehensive maternity services are facilitated by a dedicated team of professionals that include the Genesis Maternity Clinic’s Midwives, Independent Midwives, Doulas, Obstetricians and Paediatrician.

 Ante-Natal care

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, it’s important to make an appointment with a midwife to start your ante-natal care as soon as possible.  At the Genesis Maternity Clinic you have the option to contract an Independent Midwife to provide your ante-natal care, or you can attend the Genesis Ante-natal clinic.

Ante-natal appointments will allow your midwife and -members of your healthcare team to ensure both you and your baby stay healthy. Even if your pregnancy is going well and you are feeling well, it is important for you to attend your appointments so that any potential risks can be identified and managed timeously.

The appointments provide the opportunity for you to ask any questions you have about your pregnancy, such as the progress during each trimester, physical pregnancy symptoms and the birth itself. You can also get support with making healthy lifestyle choices, obtain mental health or dietary advice, or help quitting smoking or avoiding drinking alcohol. You can discuss any problems you might perceive important.

You need to see an Obstetrician at 26 to28 weeks and at 36 weeks. Another visit at 40 weeks will be required to assess the risks associated with late term pregnancy.  This is to ensure you and your baby are strong and healthy for the birthing.

Ante-Natal Clinic

To book an appointment at the Genesis Antenatal Clinic, please contact us on 011 544 9831

First appointments need to be made before 26 weeks for a comprehensive assessment to ensure that any risks can be identified, managed or referred. If you want to transfer your care from another Midwife or Obstetrician, you need a referral letter with all related blood results and scans to ensure you are eligible for admission to Genesis Maternity Clinic – based on your pregnancy risk profile. If you did not attend any ante-natal care from 26 weeks you will unfortunately not be eligible for admission into the low risk ante-natal programme.

Post-Natal Care

After the birth a Paediatrician assessment is vital to ensure all is well with your new-born. Birth vaccination is done before discharge. A six-week post-delivery check-up is vital to monitor mom’s recovery after birth at the post-natal clinic, or with the Independent midwife. Birth registration forms are also available. Should you choose to make use of this service, the Home Affairs official will deliver the baby’s birth certificate to Genesis Maternity Clinic for you to collect.

Bed Booking process (pre-admission)

Pre-admission should be done prior to 36 weeks. Preferably bed bookings are made by visiting Genesis Maternity Clinic between 08h00 and16h00 Monday to Friday, where the receptionists will assist you with the completion of the relevant documentation and provide information for your admission as required.
