How can I access a Midwife?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5″][vc_column_text]Midwifery care is accessible to those who are pregnant. Midwifery Services is covered by the Ministry of Health for those who carry a valid Ontario Health Card, so consumers are not required to pay for their care. Special funding is available for Non-OHIP residents of Ontario, however not all services will be covered. For more details about Non-OHIP, please give our office a call.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”40″][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-md-4″][mkdf_animations_holder css_animation=”mkdf-element-from-fade” animation_delay=”400″][vc_single_image image=”3945″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/mkdf_animations_holder][vc_empty_space height=”25″][vc_column_text]

Why Choose a Midwife?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5″][vc_column_text]Midwives are specialists in normal birth. The preventative, continuous and personalized care of midwives can result in fewer complications during labour and delivery. Midwives set time in prenatal visits to discuss clients’ concerns and questions, and to provide information to assist in making decisions in pregnancy. We also provide continuous care in the postpartum period for up to 6 weeks.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”40″][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-md-4″][mkdf_animations_holder css_animation=”mkdf-element-from-fade” animation_delay=”600″][vc_single_image image=”3944″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/mkdf_animations_holder][vc_empty_space height=”25″][vc_column_text]

Midwifery Students

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5″][vc_column_text]We are a teaching practice and encourage our clients to take the opportunity to have a student midwife involved in their care. Depending on their level, the student’s role in your care may range from observation, to conducting visits independently and having hands on clinical skills during your care. In every circumstance there will be a Registered Midwife available for mentoring.
