Midwifery Care

Midwives are experts in normal childbearing, providing primary care to women during pregnancy, labour, birth and the postpartum period. Their focus is on the optimum physical, emotional and psychological well-being of both mothers and their newborns. The midwifery model of care promotes the natural progression of labour and birth, and encourages the appropriate use of technology.  Visit the BC Women's Hospital Midwifery Program.
