What is Midwifery Care?

Registered Midwives are covered by MSP. Midwives provide maternity care to pregnant women and their newborn babies from early pregnancy, during labour and birth, and until six weeks postpartum. You don’t need a referral to register for midwifery care. If you are interested in receiving your maternity care with us, you can call our office to book into care.

PREGNANCY 

  • Address your physical and emotional health during 30 min. appointments every 1-4 weeks.
  • Provide standard prenatal testing and prescribe pregnancy-related medications as needed, and 24/7 on-call care for urgent concerns.

  • Build a trusting relationship with you and support shared decision-making throughout your care.

 

BIRTH 

  • Support and monitor you and baby throughout labour.
  • Help you deliver your baby in or out of hospital.

  • Provide personalized care to meet your needs and facilitate an optimal birth.

        

POSTPARTUM 

  • Provide frequent home visits for the first week after birth to support your recovery, ensure your baby is healthy, and assist with breastfeeding.

  • See you every 1-2 weeks for follow-up in clinic until baby is six weeks old.

  • Link you with community resources and specialist referrals to help you thrive as a new family.
