We are a small team of two registered midwives working in Vancouver, BC and serving Vancouver’s Lower Mainland including downtown.  We provide relationship-based, personalized midwifery care with a focus on evidence-based practice and informed decision-making. We work closely with the women in our care and their families to provide a warm and nurturing environment where women can feel safe and cared for in a way that respects their individuality and their hopes for their pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

(Caution: Some of these resources are written more with physician and obstetrician clients in mind. Midwives tend to communicate and care for their clients more directly. For example, if you have a concern that you think might warrant a visit to the hospital always page us first. We often come to your home to assess you in labour and if you page and we do think a visit to the hospital is warranted we will meet  you there and save you some waiting time.)
