Contacting Your Midwife

Midwives are available by pager 24 hours a day for urgent problems and for labour and birth. Pager numbers will be provided once you are receiving care from Access Midwifery.

While pagers are a reliable form of communication, occasionally a page does not get through to the midwife. We encourage you to page again if you have not had a call back within 10-15 minutes of your first page. When individual midwives have their off-call time, they will forward their pages to a partner midwife so you will always reach one of us.

If your question is non-urgent or concerns a clinic appointment, please call the office during business hours, leave a message on the voice mail, or send an email to the office. Our phone numbers and email address are listed on our home page and in the Contact Us area of this website.
