It is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce that Origin Family-Centred Maternity Hospital has to close its doors for good on 31 December 2018.
Please note that Origin is closing, and not being liquidated, so any deposits received from women who are due after this date will be paid back in full.

We have over 30 moms-to-be booked to birth at Origin during December. They will be the last lucky few to experience this unique facility. We look forward to being at their side as they birth in this beautiful environment, with its very special staff. We will remain fully operational as a hospital until that date – including births and theatre cases (both obstetric and gynaecological cases) and the safety of our clients is our top priority, thus no compromises will be made. The complement of staff remains the same.

Unfortunately this model is not sustainable, and could not continue to run indefinitely on this basis.

Due to the postnatal nursing period after the birth of your baby, there will be cut-off dates for final admissions to birth at Origin starting December 26th 2018. Please contact us on for details in this regard.

South Africa´s first
Maternity Hospital

Origin is the first privately owned natural birth and women’s wellness centre in the Western Cape. We bring a whole new dimension to the birth experience: providing the option to give birth with a multidisciplinary team in a family-focused environment, with carefully chosen midwives and obstetricians who understand our philosophy. All the necessary medical support is at hand.
