Primary care providers for low risk pregnant
women and their newborns.
Our midwifery practice was established in 1997 and was the first midwifery practice in the region. We have established strong relationships with other care-providers in the area and continue to work positively with our colleagues. We have had the honour of attending a multitude of births over the years and continue to provide expert midwifery care to new and repeat clients.
Most clients will be assigned a team of 3-4 midwives who share your care. We do also have a few midwives in our group who provide primary care. There is consistent care across your midwifery team because of shared protocols that reflect evidence-based research. If complications arise (during pregnancy, birth or postpartum), your midwives will consult with the appropriate specialist.
The main areas we service are
St. Catharines, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Thorold and Pelham.
We also care for a handful of clients from neighbouring communities within our catchment area such as Lincoln and South Niagara.

Niagara is situated on treaty land. This land is steeped in the rich history of the First Nations such as the Hatiwendaronk, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe, including the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. There are many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples from across Turtle Island that live and work in Niagara today. We stand with all Indigenous peoples, past and present, in promoting the wise stewardship of the lands on which we live.
Our commitment to racial justice is rooted in the belief that all members of our community are valued and needed. It is important that we acknowledge the trauma and silencing of Black, Indigenous and racialized communities within the Canadian healthcare system. We understand that racism takes on many forms and is deeply embedded within the structure of society and our healthcare system. We must take an active role in the promotion of racial justice.
All families requiring our services are welcome. We echo our Association of Ontario Midwives: "The AOM believes that all midwives and midwifery practices can and should provide an environment where all individuals are welcomed, treated with dignity and respect, and encouraged to be active members of the community."

BORN Ontario is a prescribed perinatal and child registry that is funded by the province’s
Ministry of Health. BORN Ontario was the victim of a cybersecurity incident earlier this year and
your information may have been impacted. The incident was caused by a vulnerability in the file
transfer software BORN Ontario utilized, called MOVEit.
We are among the many Ontario healthcare providers that share personal health information
with BORN Ontario related to pregnancy, birth and newborn care – important healthcare
encounters that can affect lifelong health. BORN collects data from healthcare providers
pursuant to the authority afforded to it in the Personal Health Information Protection Act
(PHIPA). BORN Ontario uses this information to identify immediate care gaps affecting
individuals, link information to appropriate care providers, perform health system quality
assurance, and analyze data for emerging trends.
