Welcome to Ontario Midwives
Midwives are experts in normal pregnancy, birth and newborn care. Ontario midwives are funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care so services are free to clients. Give birth at a hospital or at home and receive safe, skilled care from your midwife.
This video is intended for midwifery clients who have suffered a postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). It was developed by the AOM’s Clinical Practice Guidelines program as part of a project funded by Women’s Xchange, a women’s health research and knowledge translation program based at Women’s College Hospital. Based on interviews with real midwifery clients, the video explores two families’ experiences with PPH and provides factual, evidence-based information about postpartum hemorrhage and midwifery care in Ontario.
Many midwifery clients who have experienced PPH report feeling isolated during the recovery period and wish they had a friend to talk to who had lived through a similar experience. If you have suffered a PPH and are feeling isolated, these stories may help you to feel a little less alone.
