In BC, midwives practice as autonomous health care practitioners. We provide comprehensive maternity care during the prenatal, birthing and postpartum time. The best time to start your care with a midwife is as early as possible however you can transfer to us at any time.
Midwives integrate a philosophy of minimal intervention while upholding respect and inclusivity for diverse clients. Continuity of care allows for clients to feel heard and understood as they grow closer to their due date. We work alongside other maternity health care providers, such as obstetricians, physicians, pediatricians, nurses, lactation consultants, nutritionists, educators, doulas and many others.
Informed decision-making is an integral part of your care with midwives. Midwives take the time to share evidence-based information and understand your values in an environment that is respectful. We believe it is our job to provide you with all the current information about important health care decisions so that you can make choices that are right for you and your family.
