Services offered by Sanitas

There’s a lot to think about when you’ve decided to try for a baby. We offer you support and advice throughout your journey. There are a few important things to consider before you get pregnant – we’ll tell you what you need to know.

Check your insurance cover

We recommend you check your insurance cover in good time. Are you happy with the benefits of mandatory basic insurance or would you like extra benefits?


Key questions:

  • Do you want a senior consultant or a gynaecologist of your choice to be on hand during the birth?
  • Do you value the comfort and privacy of a single or two-bed room?
  • Do you want a free choice of the hospital or maternity facility in which you give birth?

If you answer “yes” to one of these questions, we recommend taking out semiprivate or private hospital insurance before you become pregnant.

Be mindful of waiting periods

It’s important to consider these questions early on, because there is a waiting period when taking out supplementary insurance plans. No costs will be covered until this waiting period expires. In the worst case scenario, you’ll only be able to take advantage of the benefits once your baby is born. Health insurers offer different waiting periods for maternity. With Sanitas, entitlement to maternity benefits commences 9 months after receipt of the application.
