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

a super positive experience.

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

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!

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

Informed choices

“The postpartum care is one of the many things that make midwives so special. Our midwives helped us make it through those first weeks as new parents.”

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

“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.”

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

Welcome

Our midwifery practice is providing you with this information so that you will be aware of the midwifery services we provide, and the philosophy underlying midwifery care in Ontario. 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. Responsibility for well-being rests both with the providers of care and with the woman herself.
