We are a group of registered midwives in Ontario. We are primary care providers who are experts in healthy and low-risk pregnancy, labour, birth, and postpartum for both mothers and babies.
We provide adequate and proper prenatal care, which is an important part of promoting a healthy pregnancy and preparing for birth and postpartum. We provide you with opportunities to learn about the changes your body goes through as the pregnancy advances. We offer counseling, education, and advice on nutrition, exercise, and social and emotional aspects of this special stage of your life. We also provide informed discussions and decision making support throughout your care with us. We want to make sure that you are an active decision maker once you and your midwives form a team. Each pregnant woman and family is different, and we respond to our clients’ unique and individual needs.
When you do meet your midwife, you may have many questions about your pregnancy, your baby, and/or your body. One of the many things that our clients appreciate is the thorough and informative appointments they have with their midwives. We will help answer any and all questions you may have.
Our Catchment Area:
Markham, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket, East of Vaughan, North of North York, and North of Scarborough.
Midwifery Scope of Practice
“The midwife is recognized as a responsible and accountable professional who works in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care and advice during pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period, to conduct births on the midwife’s own responsibility and to provide care for the newborn and the infant. This care includes preventative measures, the promotion of normal birth, the detection of complications in mother and child, the accessing of medical care or other appropriate assistance and the carrying out of emergency measures. The midwife has an important task in health counselling and education, not only for the woman, but also within the family and the community. This work should involve antenatal education and preparation for parenthood and may extend to women’s health, sexual or reproductive health and child care. A midwife may practise in any setting including the home, community, hospitals, clinics or health units. Revised and adopted by ICM Council June 15.”
