“Thank you so much for overall EXECELENT care. Would definitely choose midwifery care again and recommend it to friends.”

“My midwives were amazing from beginning to end. I felt respected, safe and understood in their presence. I knew I could call on them anytime and that my baby and me would be well cared for.”

“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.”

“In the end, my midwife delivered my baby, but while I was under the doctor’s care, she stood next to me and was always supportive. I loved my experience with the midwives and will definitely choose them again for a second pregnancy.”

“My midwife was always calm and very good in helping me relax. I could not have asked for a better birth experience.”

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

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 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.

The midwife visits were as meaningful to me as any other part of my pregnancy journey. Just a super positive experience.

I always felt my opinion mattered in all of our discussions; they are like having amazing professional friends!

It’s all about choices, I loved my midwives!


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.


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.
