If you have an urgent obstetrical concern and are unable to come to the Maternity Urgent Care Centre, contact your maternity care provider immediately.
If you are pregnant and are experiencing symptoms that are not in the above list, please contact your family doctor or maternity care provider.
If you are not pregnant and require emergency care, please seek care at your local emergency department or call 911. For non-life threatening illness or injuries, you can visit an urgent and primary care centre. You can view local urgent care and emergency department wait times in real time.
