We support the choice of planned home birth as an option for healthy mothers. There is a lot of research that supports the safety of home birth. Women who birth at home benefit from increased convenience, privacy and feelings of being in control.
Midwives provide complete prenatal, labour, birth and postnatal care to healthy women and their babies. Midwifery care is free for all residents of Ontario. You don't need to be a Canadian citizen and you don't even need a health card (OHIP).
The Hamilton Midwives deliver babies at St Joseph's Hospital. We provide complete care for mothers who choose to have a hospital birth. Our clients have access to the care and expertise of the wider medical team if complications arise.
Midwives qualify for registration by graduating from the Ontario Midwifery Education Program, a four year university degree program. Foreign-trained midwives complete the International Midwifery Pre-registration Program at Ryerson University. Meet our midwives.
