I would rather have a natural birth, but when do I do the bookings or should I wait till I'm 8months?

I had my twins at Parklane Clinic in May. You' ll be charged a booking fee of R350. Hospital costs for a 3 night stay (C-section) came to R18 500. I was in a private room so I paid in an extra R5000. The gynae' s bill for the delivery was R5250. You' ll also need to pay the anaesthetist and the paediatrician separately. While you are in hospital, they do a mandatory thyroid test on the baby, that was R171.

You have to phone them, they probably range between R20 000 and R30 000 depending on weather you having a c-section or natural birth, natural birth is usually cheaper.
I would suggest you ' shop'  around first.....
