Specialists in the care of women and babies.

We view pregnancy and birth as normal, healthy, family-centered life events, and deliver babies at hospital, birth centre, and home.

The art and science of midwifery has served to help bring new lives into our world for centuries. Often cloaked in mystery in ancient times, midwifery has become commonplace in mainstream society in recent years. Ottawa is home to our thriving midwifery practice called The Midwifery Group of Ottawa.

Welcome your new child into our community in the capable, loving and experienced hands of one of our midwives. Whether in the serenity of your own home or birth centre or hospital, our caring professionals will nurture your entire family through this meaningful event. The Midwifery Group of Ottawa offers complete midwifery care for your pregnancy, labour, birth, and postpartum period. We care for both mother and baby until 6 weeks postpartum.

Midwifery care is free for residents of Ontario. Midwives are registered to practice midwifery by the College of Midwives of Ontario.

The Midwifery Group of Ottawa was established in 1994 after the Regulated Health Professions Act was passed.
