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.
My midwives gave me lots of information so I could make an informed, evidence based decision about my care.Informed choices
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I felt comfortable making the choices we made and felt that we were not judged for our choices. Our midwives provided us with support every step of the way.”Informed Choice
“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.”
I felt reassured during labour just knowing my midwife was there. I had confidence in their knowledge and experience.
“This is a dedicated team who really cares about safety and quality of birth and pregnancy and postpartum experience.”
