Maternity Photography North Vancouver - Expecting woman posing

Midwife services in North Vancouver

Hi, I am Tanja, a Newborn, Maternity and Baby Photographer in North Vancouver. I work closely with a lot of moms-to-be and though this Midwifes list would be a great post.

WHAT IS A MIDWIFE?

A registered midwife offers primary maternity care to healthy pregnant clients and their newborn babies from early pregnancy, through labour and birth, until about six weeks following delivery.

ARE THE COSTS OF MIDWIFERY SERVICES COVERED IN BC?

Yes, the BC Ministry of Health covers the cost of midwifery services for all BC residents with a valid Carecard or BC Services Card through the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP).

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MIDWIFE?

As soon as you find out you are pregnant is a good time to book a midwife as they fill up very quickly.

CAN I CHOOSE WHETHER I GIVE BIRTH AT HOME OR IN HOSPITAL?

Yes, if you are having a healthy, low-risk pregnancy you can choose to have a house birth or give birth at the hospital.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MIDWIFE AND A DOULA?

Doulas do not provide medical care and do not deliver babies. Midwives are trained to provide all the necessary medical care and to monitor the health and well-being of you and your baby.

Doulas work as a part of the team, with a midwife, doctor and nurse. Doulas provide emotional and physical support and are a positive addition to the birth team. For more information about doulas, please visit the BC Doula Services Association.
