Some expecting mothers know right away the birthing plan they have in mind. Others are not entirely sure or may even change their mind. At home birthing or the hospital? Epidural, C-section, or natural vaginal delivery? Breastfeeding or bottle? These are important choices for mothers. Barrie Midwives is eager to help you make well-informed decisions suitable for your body and your unborn baby. It is essential to them that you feel confident and supported.
About Barrie Midwives
The College of Midwives of Ontario regulates Barrie Midwives. They are a dedicated community
of midwives that believe in the continuity of care, informed choices, and a positive birthing experience. They also believe in the right to give birth where the mother feels most comfortable. Their practice consists of registered midwives, student midwives, and administration. Members work together to ensure every mom gets the care and support they need.
Barrie Midwives provide continuous care during pregnancy, labor, birthing, and postpartum care for optimum support. They are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for any urgent concerns. Barrie Midwives have an appropriate skill set for all settings, whether at the hospital or home birthing. Additionally, they believe in an uninterrupted birthing process. Offering information and resources for pregnancy and postpartum support is one of their top goals to create a positive experience. The provincial government in Ontario also fully funds midwifery services, making them accessible to all residents.
As formally trained health care professionals, Barrie Midwives are specialists in normal birthing. They view pregnancy and birth as a typical family event. Respecting the mother as the primary decision-maker, the Barrie Midwives are trained to detect and respond to risk factors. The midwives provide complete prenatal and birth care and care for the mom and newborn six weeks after the birth. Additionally, they are educated to assess if pregnancies are low risk. If pregnancy becomes high risk, they will consult and work with an obstetrician or pediatrician according to a strict set of guidelines all Registered Midwives must follow.
