"Registered Midwives in BC offer primary maternity care to healthy pregnant women and their newborn babies. Midwifery care is covered by your Care Card. Midwives listen, observe, educate, guide and care. They order and interpret tests and discuss results. They screen for physical, psychological, emotional and social health. Midwives are with women during pregnancy, labour, and birth: normal and complicated. They catch babies; do home visits after your babies are born; help with breastfeeding and adjusting to life with a new baby.
Midwives work together with obstetricians, pediatricians, family physicians and nurses. They practice evidence-based, woman-centred maternity and newborn care, and are an established part of the BC health care system. In a nutshell, midwives are experts in healthy pregnancies and births."
