Pregnancy is an extraordinary experience. If one has to highlight life experiences, most women will say that pregnancy and childbirth are the experiences that they will never forget.
Pregnant members and dependants of GEMS have access to the Maternity Programme. The GEMS Maternity Programme is a comprehensive programme designed.
This programme is specifically designed with the needs of expectant parents, and their support network in mind. We aim to to give you support, education and advice through all stages of your pregnancy, the confinement and postnatal (after birth) period. The programme will also support your healthcare practitioner and a workplace support colleague (HR Practitioner or Manager) if you choose to nominate one, providing them with the necessary tools to support you along this journey.
The Maternity Programme is headed by case managers who are experienced, registered nursing sisters with additional qualifications in midwifery. These case managers will help you to register on the Maternity Programme and you can contact them on 0860 00 4367 for advice and information.
To access your maternity benefits, pregnant members or dependants must register on the programme as soon as their pregnancy is confirmed.
You need to complete an enrolment form and fax, email or post the completed form to 0861 00 4367, email@example.com or GEMS Maternity Programme, Private Bag X782, Cape Town, 8000.
