We provide care to women living in the greater Victoria area. This includes (but is not limited to): Victoria, Esquimalt, View Royal, Brentwood Bay, Sidney, Western Communities, Sooke, Mill Bay and the southern Gulf Islands. Along with other Victoria midwives, we provide back-up support to the Salt Spring Island midwives and their clients. If you’re wondering whether you’re within our catchment area, please contact us for more information.
The midwives provide clinical services in clinic, in client’s homes and at Victoria General Hospital. Talk to the midwives if you have transportation or other barriers that make it difficult to attend prenatal appointments at the clinic.
The midwives come to your home for appointments in the first few weeks following the birth of your baby. This gives greater support for breastfeeding, early parenting and sleep!
The midwives generally come to your house in labour. Women are encouraged to labour in the comfort of their own homes when clinical circumstances permit. Many women choose to deliver their babies at home. Many choose to deliver in hospital. We will listen to your wishes for birth location and will provide evidence-based information to help you make your decision about what is best for you and your baby.
