Midwives provide complete care throughout pregnancy, labour, birth, and the first six weeks following birth. This basket of services — referred to as a “course of care”– provides continuity, optimizing your safety and comfort. A team of up to four midwives will be responsible for your care throughout pregnancy. At the time of delivery two midwives will typically attend your birth. Clients can contact their midwives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with urgent concerns.
