Midwives are health-care professionals who provide free, expert primary care to pregnant people and their newborns. Each year Ontario’s highly trained Midwives deliver more than 20,000 babies. Midwifery care is fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Midwives view pregnancy and childbirth as a profound time in a person’s life, with a variety of personal and cultural meanings. They see themselves as partners in their clients’ care.
