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

I felt reassured during labour just knowing my midwife was there. I had confidence in their knowledge and experience.

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

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

“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.”

“The midwives’postpartum care is second to none. One of the most challenging and confusing times for new parents…first time or not…was made exponentially easier thanks to the support and incredible care and knowledge of our midwives”

Incredible support and care postpartum

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 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!

The best midwifery care is provided when women make informed decisions about their health care, involving their families and community as they wish, and develop a comfortable relationship with a small group of midwives.
