What is Maternity Care?

Maternity Care is care provided after the birth of your baby. It entails care for both the newborn baby and the mother. The nurse checks several vitals of the baby and mother. But also advises about general hygiene, clothing, feeding, and sleeping.

 

It is a service package of a total of ten 45 minute visits over a period of three to eight weeks. It's covered via an Island Government doctor card (OZR fund) or a cost of NAFL. 750,00.

Why Maternity Care?

Potential client or their contact person are invited to apply for maternity up to one week before the due date.

The following documents are needed to start the intake process:

  1. Copy of valid ID card;

  2. Copy of valid (OZR) insurance card;

  3. Medication list (If applicable);

  4. Wound treatment plan (if applicable);

Follow up

Maternity care typically starts the day after discharge from the hospital when the District Nursing is contacted by the mother or father. The intake form will be filled in, and the documentation will be collected.

 

Maternity care is only covered via an island government doctor card under SZV (OZR fund)​

If you have private insurance, you will have to pay the total amount to WYCCF before the care starts. With the receipt, you can apply for reimbursement at your insurance company.

 

Apply up to one week before due date.
