Midwives are primary care providers to pregnant persons and their babies. This means that your midwife is able to order lab work and ultrasounds, prescribe medications, and admit and discharge you from the hospital. You do not need to receive care from a physician if you’re in the care of a midwife.
What do prenatal appointments look like with a midwife?
We attend births at home and in hospital . We have privileges at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. Currently, as WLMH undergoes renovations, we have privileges at Niagara Health System (St. Catharines). Whether you are planning home or hospital, your midwife team will have you complete a registration package for the hospital.
We have an extensive library of books for our clients to borrow from through their prenatal care. We highly recommend Birthing from Within and Birth Without Fear to help clients prepare for labour. Check our birth preparation class guide.
