Midwives are trained primary health care professionals who are experts in normal low-risk pregnancy, birth and newborn care. Midwives provide a complete package of prenatal, birth and postpartum care and address the medical and non-medical needs of women and their newborns. Midwives promote a natural approach to childbirth and empower women and their families to make informed choices throughout their pregnancy and birth. Midwives focus on the prevention and early detection of complications and use medical technology as needed. Midwives have been fully funded and regulated as part of the Ontario health care system since 1994. The College of Midwives of Ontario licenses midwives and ensures the ongoing quality and safety of midwifery care.
