You’ve received the good news – your family is going to grow and you are preparing to welcome a new bundle of joy into your household.

Whether you are expecting for the first time, or have already gone through the process before, pregnancy and the birth of a child is an indescribable feeling.

At Essential Med, we want you to enjoy every moment, from cravings to picking out clothes and setting up your nursery.

There is one unavoidable subject that can often hamper the experience though – and that is the cost of giving birth.

However, when choosing Essential Med, we will be right there alongside you, holding your hand as your child arrives.

You can savour the moment and bond with your new born with the comfort of knowing that up to R30 000 will be paid to cover the birth of your child.

It is important to note that there is a 12-month waiting period on maternity cover, unless stated otherwise within your policy.

Added to this, the incredible benefits of our day-to-day cover and specialist access can dramatically lessen the cost to you during your pregnancy, and ensure that you always have access to the doctors you need throughout.

Get in touch with Essential Med today to find out more about our maternity cover, as we would love to be part of yet another one of life’s special miracles.
