A midwife is a professionally trained primary care provider who cares for women during normal pregnancy, labour and birth and for both mother and baby for the first six weeks of the postpartum period.
Midwives can order any blood work, tests and ultrasounds if needed and they can prescribe antibiotics and some other medications. They consult with other professional care providers within the community and occasional further afield.
We provide primary care to women during pregnancy, labour and birth and for six weeks during the postpartum period. Our care is founded on respect for pregnancy.
Clinic appointments are held in Collingwood and Midland and we attend your birth at home and at Collingwood General & Marine, Orillia Soldier's Memorial Hospital and Georgian Bay hospital in Midland.
Our service is fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and is of no cost to you.
You do not need a referral from your family doctor.
Simply call us or complete an intake form and we will assess whether or not you are a suitable candidate for midwifery care and contact you.
