“My husband and I developed an excellent relationship with our midwife and felt very comfortable and confident asking questions.”

“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.”

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

“We are extremely satisfied with the care received from pregnancy to postpartum and will be choosing midwives for our next pregnancy. Great work!”

“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 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 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.”

“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.”

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


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.
