Midwives are health professionals who provide care and support during pregnancy, labour, birth, and until six weeks after the baby is born. Midwives view pregnancy as a state of health, and birth as an important and special experience. Under midwifery care, some pregnant people do not need to see a doctor.
You must be in the care of a midwife to give birth at Ode’imin (formerly known as the Birth Centre).
Please note: You must live within WRHA and have a Manitoba Health Card or Federal Military Coverage in order to obtain a WRHA midwife
