Our clinic is located in a central Vancouver location at 3980 Main Street. Our office manager is happy to accommodate your questions and can book you an initial appointment to consult with one of our midwives at any point in your pregnancy. We look forward to meeting you!
Our site also includes a comprehensive section to answer many pregnancy and birth questions and links to other midwifery resources for the clients of the midwifery group.
We provide comprehensive maternity care for women and babies throughout the pregnancy, the labour and birth and the postpartum period.
DID YOU KNOW?
We are covered by your BC Care Card
BC’s Medical Services Plan pays for midwifery care, including in-home check-ups in labour and after you’ve had the baby. You can self-refer to a midwife.
Hospital or Home Birth
With a midwife, you can choose hospital or home birth.
Continuity of Care
Midwives work in small teams. You will meet all the midwives on your team, and know the person who will be taking care of you at your birth.
Midwives offer 30-45 minute appointments so you get to know the person who will be taking care of you. We also give you the latest information in maternity care and the time to discuss these issues. We offer all routine prenatal and postnatal tests.
Midwives are specialists in maternity care for normal, healthy women and babies. Should you or your baby require the care of a physician, midwives will arrange that for you.
Studies show midwifery clients have lower rates of infection, episiotomies, cesarean sections, forceps deliveries, vacuum extractions and newborns that require resuscitation.
Pregnancy is not an illness! We recognize what an extraordinary time this is in your life and are available to support you. At The Midwifery Group we pride ourselves on creating individualized care and strong relationships to provide you with the health care that best suits your needs.
