Hi Lashy,

Apparently all doctors are not pro natural... I have heard of a couple of doctors at Wilgeheuwel that are pro c-section (expecially Dr Wypkema).

Me: 32
DH: 38

Been married since April 2009 :-)

If I remember :whistle: I will enquire for you with my gynae when I am there later. :)

Hi BabyT,

I'm a patient of Dr Wypkema's, she never suggested a c-section for my first baby, nor has she done so for my current pregnancy. She never tried to influence me in any way. I don't think you are in a position to make such a comment if you're not a patient of hers.

That is why I am in this forum, asking the questions DieSwartKat – to get informed and to put me in a position to make the right decisions.....

I have also personally dealt with her before and I do not question her expertise in anyway, she is a very nice doctor and she did an amazing job with the birth of my sister's baby boy (there were a lot of complications during the birth). She has also personally delivered about 80% of all the babies born in our circle of family and friends, but we all have our personal preferences in life and I think we should respect this...

Hi Ladies

I just found out 2 days ago that I'm pregnant and i'm overwhelmed by all the things i need to consider, one of them being Hospital + Gynae. To be honest i forgot all about Medical Plans and Dr's tariffs etc etc but I've got Gap cover with Xelus so hopefully that will take care of any shortfalls. But i'm calling both Xelus and Discovery to make sure i don't get any nasty surprises.

Regarding hospitals..I'm also considering Wilgeheuwel so its been worthwhile reading your thoughts and opinions, but i'd like to know if anyone has had any experience with Genesis Clinic in Saxonwold?
