CARE DURING PREGNANCY

 

If you are on a medical aid, please contact your medical aid to confirm whether they cover antenatal 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, through which the bulk of the antenatal consultations are carried out at Origin Family-Centred Maternity Hospital, is contracted out. This means that ALL clients – whether on a medical aid or not – must settle their bills after each consultation. Those who are on medical aid must claim the consultation fee back from their medical aids themselves.

Pregnant women have approximately 14 consultations during their pregnancies at Origin Family-Centred Maternity Hospital, depending upon the stage at which they join us:

  • Ten of these consultations are with Origin midwives

  • Two of these consultations are with an obstetrician from the panel of obstetricians at Origin

  • Two of these consultations are with a Fetal Medicine Expert for scans (provided off-site. Referrals will be done accordingly)

See Midwife Practice for full details of the clinical pathway that will be followed and all consultations.
