About Midwifery

Midwifery Model of Care

Midwives are experts in low-risk pregnancy and birth. They provide primary care to women during pregnancy, labour, birth, and to both mother and baby in the immediate postpartum period. Their focus is on the optimum physical, emotional and psychological well-being of both mothers and their newborns. The midwifery model of care supports a woman's right to choose throughout her pregnancy and birth experience, and promotes the natural, physiologic progression of labour and birth. 

All midwifery services are covered by the BC Medical Services Plan. More information about midwifery practice in BC, including model, philosophy and standards of practice can be found on the website for the College of Midwives of BC
