The Association of Ontario Midwives


Midwives are experts in the provision of primary care for women anticipating normal, low-risk pregnancy and birth.

Midwives view pregnancy and childbirth as a profound time in one's life, with a variety of personal and cultural meanings.

Midwives see themselves as partners in their clients' care, providing choice of birthplace, continuity of care, informed choice and recognizing their clients as the primary decision-makers.

Clients can call their midwives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with urgent concerns.
