Midwifery care creates a partnership with women that is individualized, empowering, and supportive. It is based on a respect for pregnancy as a state of health and childbirth as a normal physiological process and a profound event in a woman’s life. Fundamental to midwifery care is the understanding that a woman’s caregivers will respect and support her so that she may give birth safely, with power and with dignity.
Registered midwives are primary caregivers. We provide comprehensive care for women and their babies during pregnancy, labour and birth, and up to six weeks postpartum. Midwifery care is funded by the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP). If you have a BC Care Card, there is no cost to you for midwifery services.
At Cook St. Community Midwives we work as solo practitioners with each midwife caring for her own clients. However, we support one another to provide women and their families with the best care possible. Contact our office to arrange and appointment with a registered midwife.
