Wondering if midwifery care is right for you?
The Canadian Association of Midwives states:
“Midwives provide the complete course of low-risk prenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care, including physical examinations, screening and diagnostic tests, the assessment of risk and abnormal conditions, and the conduct of normal vaginal deliveries. Midwives work in collaboration with other health professionals and consult with or refer to medical specialists as appropriate. The midwifery model of care promotes normal birth, enables women to make informed choices, and provides continuity of care and support throughout the childbearing experience. Midwives attend births in hospitals, birth centres and at home.”(source)
Many families choose to work with a midwife because they appreciate the personalized care and support offered by this model. Some are motivated by the desire to birth at home. Others may have simply moved to Saskatchewan from a place where midwifery is the norm and see no reason to do differently. There are as many reasons to choose midwifery care as there are families who access these services.
If you are unsure, we encourage you to call your local program office and ask for more information!
