If you are having a baby and live within our catchment areas (Woodstock to Claremont; Mowbray to Sawkins Road; all the Avenues in Rondebosch East), you are welcome to book in with us and allow us to guide you along your journey to motherhood. We have been doing this since 1916.
Mowbray Maternity is a referral hospital – meaning that mothers who have booked at Midwife Obstetric Units (MOUs) in Hanover Park, Mitchells Plain, Gugulethu and Retreat who have been assessed by a midwife or doctor and require a higher level of care are referred to us according to the medical need.
We offer a full range of high-level maternity services, spanning the three main stages of childbirth – Antenatal care; labour and delivery; and postnatal care. With our caring, experienced and highly trained team of midwives and obstetricians and our state-of–the-art facilities, we will ensure you receive the best possible care, and that the process of giving birth is the joyous event it is meant to be.
Most women have normal pregnancies and deliver healthy babies. For women who have a higher risk of developing a problem during pregnancy or birth, we offer the most advanced programmes and care available.
At Mowbray Maternity, we pride ourselves on working every step of the way towards ensuring a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby.
In 2007, we received recognition for this, winning the “Premier’s Service Excellence Award” for excellent service delivery in the Western Cape.
Please note that MMH is a Public Hospital and services are free which is in line with the Government Policy which states health services for pregnant mothers and children under the age of six is free.
