CARE AFTER PREGNANCY

 

If you are on a medical aid, please contact your medical aid to confirm whether they cover postnatal visits and consultations that take place at Origin Family-Centred Maternity Hospital. The practice that carries out these consultations is registered with the medical aids as Grové De Beer Midwife Practice (Practice No. 0622184). Please use this name when you  ask which benefits are covered.

The Grové De Beer Midwife Practice is contracted out. All clients must settle the costs of consultations by EFT before they take place. Those with medical aid may claim the consultation fee back from their medical aids themselves.
