Choices in Birth

Helping expectant mothers and their families learn more about the childbirth options available to them.

Best Birth Clinic

A new, first-in-BC clinic is helping expectant mothers and their families learn more about the childbirth options available to them. Women now have access to more support, counseling and information to help them make optimal choices for childbirth.

The Best Birth Clinic provides free consultations to women on the risks and benefits of their different birth options. Pregnant women who are considering vaginal or cesarean birth can have their questions answered and connect with health professionals with expertise in supporting women's choices in maternity care.

The Best Birth Clinic is a consultant clinic, and does not replace a women's regular prenatal medical care with her physician or midwife.

These clinics are part of Power to Push, a public education campaign conceived at BC Women's.
