Respect for pregnancy and birth
Midwifery care is based on respect for pregnancy and birth as normal and healthy and a profound social, emotional, spiritual and cultural event in a woman's life.
Registered health-care professional
A midwife is a registered health-care professional who provides primary care to women during pregnancy, labour and birth.
Our services can include conducting normal vaginal deliveries, and providing care to mothers and babies during the first 6 weeks postpartum.
Free for residents of Ontario
Midwifery care is free to women who are residents of Ontario. Funding is provided by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
You will have the opportunity to establish a relationship of trust with your midwives. You will have the same caregivers throughout your pregnancy, labour, birth and in the postpartum period.
