Welcome to the Mediclinic Baby programme
Mediclinic Southern Africa is proud to present the Mediclinic Baby programme.
This is an exclusive programme available to all parents whose babies are born at a Mediclinic hospital.
We know how important expert information is to expectant parents at every stage of pregnancy. We would therefore like to invite you to join the Mediclinic Baby programme, where you will not only receive weekly online newsletters and invitations to hospital events, such as Pregnancy Education Week, but also a host of other benefits and services. By joining the programme, you all stand a chance of winning a pack of Huggies nappies.
Being part of our programme you can receive:
- A Pregnancy journal, which can be collected at your doctor's rooms or from the client services manager at your chosen Mediclinic hospital.
- Free relevant pregnancy and postnatal information on a weekly basis via email (should you select the option).
- A FREE award-winning pregnancy app for iPhone or Android.
- A DVD range covering the following topics: Bathing your newborn, Breastfeeding, Healthy Baby - Happy baby (R50 each incl. postage).
- Assistance with your UIF claim through Mom's UIF Assist at a special discounted rate.
- Tailor-made antenatal courses, presented by childbirth professionals. These courses are designed to meet your needs and comprise weekly or condensed Saturday classes, or a specially designed weekend getaway. (Enquire at your nearest Mediclinic or visit our website for details.) We'll also provide a handy file in which to keep all your notes from the course you attend.
We recommend that you attend an antenatal course from ± 26 weeks. Click here to find a childbirth educator.
