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 birth after caesarean section (VBAC) or wish to discuss options for a Breech delivery, 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.
Women seeking counselling to discuss post-birth trauma can schedule an appointment with a clinical counsellor by calling our clinic to make an appointment.
These clinics are part of Power to Push, a public education campaign conceived at BC Women's.
Power to Push is a collaboration which as brought together health care professionals in support of women-centred care.
You can also follow Power to Push via Twitterand Facebook or watch patients discussing their birth experiences on Youtube.
BC Women's is a "teaching hospital" and we are involved in providing clinical education and experience for students in the health professions.
Many of our clinicians are actively involved in research that helps us provide the best possible care for you and your loved ones.
