  1. Clients select a community midwife clinic by filling in our online intake form.
  2. The AMU is staffed by hospitalist midwives on the unit 24/7 who will facilitate and organize consultations and work as the liaison with obstetricians and community midwives.
  3. 23 midwives have privileges to deliver on the AMU, seven of whom are hospitalist midwives.
  4. The AMU has six specially equipped birthing rooms outfitted with upright birthing stools, and hanging slings allowing women to adopt upright positions. The rooms also have tubs suitable for water births and have double-sized Murphy beds for rest after giving birth.
  5. 80 per cent of women will go home within six hours after giving birth and are visited at home by a midwife within 24 hours.
  6. Midwives provide complete care from early pregnancy to six weeks after labour for mother and baby.
