As primary health care providers, midwives can provide all necessary care for healthy pregnant women. Prenatal care (care during pregnancy) includes regular visits with your midwives and is an important part of keeping yourself and your baby healthy. Our model is a collaborative model, and we consult with our colleagues such as physicians, lactation consultants, and alternative care providers should maternal or newborn complications develop. Our care is fully funded through the Medical Services Plan and there is no charge to you for midwifery care.
Prenatal care includes urinalysis, monitoring blood pressure, fetal growth, fetal heart rate and position and the general well-being of mother and baby, and plays an important role in preventing and detecting problems that can arise in pregnancy. In addition, we pay close attention to the social and emotional aspects of your pregnancy and transition into parenthood. Your support people and your children are welcome to join you at prenatal visits.
