How can I access a Midwife?
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.
Why choose a Midwife?
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.
Excellent care and support. This meant so much to me. Very confident that I had the best support and care.
