“We were very impressed with the level of care provided leading up to the delivery of our daughter.”

“I wanted to have a natural birth in the hospital and my midwife provided me with many useful strategies on how to cope with the pain.”

“They were always there for all questions and concerns, all ups and downs throughout the pregnancy. Provided all options and supported our decisions.”

“My midwives were absolutely amazing during labour and delivery! I couldn’t have asked for a better delivery. I had all the confidence in the world in them.”

My midwives were great on giving me information on VBAC. I was able to meeting with the physician who did my c-section to discuss VBAC options.  All were for in and I had a successful VBAC thanks to the advice from my midwives.

VBAC choices were respected

“Without my midwives help I would not have been able to master breastfeeding. I’m so glad we were able to solve the problem and continue to breastfeed.”

My midwives gave me lots of information so I could make an informed, evidence based decision about my care.

Informed choices

I was happy with the conversation we had with Dr X just before I was induced….I was conscious of, and curious what the doctor-midwife conversation would look like.  I felt at ease.

I was conscious of, and curious what the doctor-midwife conversation would look like. I felt at ease.

My care was transferred to Doctor during labor and for delivery. My midwife explained the reasoning and was a great support and advocate for my wishes!

OB transfer

“I couldn’t imagine giving birth without midwives. You were so helpful.”

Welcome!

NOTICE: JUNE 16,2022 Support person at clinic appointments:

We are happy to share that we are now allowing 1 adult support person to attend appointments at the midwife office. Clients & their support person must wear a mask, be well and pass the self-screening questionnaire.

If you or your support person arrive at the clinic with evidence of symptoms of COVID or other illness, you will be both denied entry.

At this time, we are not allowing children into the office. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation keeping midwives, staff, clients and babies safe as we navigate the pandemic.

NOTICE: MARCH 1,2022

March 1st Notice: The lifting of provincial restrictions today applies in many public areas, but not to health care spaces. In accordance with Public Health guidelines, health care spaces follow more stringent protocols due to the critical nature of the services we provide: midwives need to stay healthy to attend births, ICUs need capacity to treat critical patients, etc. The vulnerability of the population being served (particularly newborns) means measures in place prior to March 1st will continue. Masks are mandatory, support people and siblings cannot attend visits at the clinic.


We will happily update this practice as the guidelines change. Thank you for your understanding.


We are pleased that you have found our site, and hope you gather more information here about the care Midwives provide. We are proud to offer you complete primary maternity care, with you making informed decisions about your pregnancy, labor and postpartum. While providing exceptional maternity care, we will take the time to build a trusting relationship with each of you and your families.
