The Discovery Postnatal HomeCare programme was developed to not only get new moms out of hospital sooner, but also to provide quality follow-up and care in the comfort of the new parents home.

Should the new mother decide to leave the hospital 1 day sooner as what the medical aid would cover, she then is entitled to 3 midwife visits during the first 6 weeks after birth.
If you are on Discovery and you are pregnant or just had your baby and you still are in hospital, please contact me to get more info and to arrange your follow-up.
This option is for most bigger centers in South Africa and as it is a ongoing process to include new areas. To find out if your area is covered, please contact me.
Just to make it clear that any new mother can have postnatal follow-up at home, regardless of medical aid. Independent midwives can be contacted in all areas for postnatal care. This specific program however is part of Discovery and this service is done by Discovery accredited midwives.
