Tip: Apply for Maternity Care
These days, mothers only stay in hospital for a maximum of three days after the birth of their baby. This doesn’t give you much time to get back on your feet. Fortunately, you can apply for Maternity Care. Did you know that you can also make use of Maternity Care during your pregnancy?
Health insurance funds and/or hospitalisation insurance often provide a reimbursement for maternity care under certain conditions. Ideally, you receive Maternity Care from both a midwife and a maternity nurse. The midwife provides medical care for you and your baby, and can help with issues such as breastfeeding problems. The maternity nurse helps with the care of your baby and takes care of household chores, such as providing assistance with cooking, cleaning, and bathing your baby.
Could you use some extra help to give your little one the happiness he or she deserves? Ask your health insurance fund for more information.
