About Cambridge Midwives
Cambridge Midwives provides primary care for low-risk pregnancies. Throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and the first 6 weeks after birth. Midwifery care is founded on respect for normal pregnancy and birth as a healthy process and profound event in a women’s life.
We opened our doors in January of 2000. Prior to this time Cambridge women who desired midwifery care were required to travel to Kitchener or Guelph. Since opening Cambridge Midwives has helped over 8398 families. Both at home and in the hospital. We have an excellent rapport with Cambridge Memorial Hospital, ensuring our clients experience at the hospital is seamless. In addition to standard midwifery care, we specialize in providing a variety of drug free options for improving the progress of labour and the comfort of our clients.
Our catchment area encompasses a radius of approximately a half hour drive from the city of Cambridge. Pre and Postpartum visits at home are provided within the entire catchment area. The following is intended to provide you with information on our practice and the services we provide.
Model of Care
The Midwifery Model of care is a practice group of at least 2-4 midwives. Two Midwives attend each birth. This model of two midwives at births is unique in Ontario. It is based on the principle of one midwife to care for the mother (The Primary Midwife) and one for the baby (The Second Midwife).
What We Do
Cambridge Midwives are health-care professionals who provide government-funded expert primary care to pregnant people and their newborns. Throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and the first 6 weeks after birth you and your baby will be cared for by a small group of midwives. Having a small team of midwives to provide your prenatal care helps to ensure that you have a known and trusted midwife helping you to deliver your baby.
100% Government Funded
Midwives are part of the Ontario health-care system and are completely funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Ontario residents who are not currently covered by OHIP can still receive midwifery care with no charge.
