Midwives understand that everyone is different, and provide care based on your own physical and emotional needs.
Midwifery is based on 3 fundamental principles; Continuity of Care, Informed Choice, and Choice of Birthplace.
Midwifery Services of Durham is a teaching practice, so in addition to the Registered Midwives, midwifery students are normally associated with our practice. These students are enrolled in the Midwifery Baccalaureate Program and spend about 50% of their education time in a Midwifery Practice. Currently in Ontario one woman is turned away from midwifery care for every woman that is booked and in order to ensure better access for women to midwifery care, it is important that we see students graduate from the program.
