Will there be a doctor at the birth?

Midwives are trained and licensed as primary health care providers in labour and delivery. And we love what we do! For you this means that we will facilitate your delivery and the care of your baby following the birth. However, we do work as a team with other health care professionals. In the hospital we have a great team of nurses providing back up care. (At home we will bring in a second midwife prior to the delivery). At times we may consult with an Obstetrician, GP, Paediatrician, or other appropriate physician in order to provide you with all services necessary for your care. When at all possible we will discuss these consults with you prior to calling the physician.
