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 a woman'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 the woman as the primary decision maker.

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