Midwives in the Comox Valley
Midwives are specialists in low risk pregnancy and birth. Registered Midwives in BC offer primary maternity care to healthy pregnant women and their babies from early pregnancy, through labour and birth, until about six weeks postpartum.
Midwives in the Comox Valley work in small groups to provide continuity of care, which means that you are likely to know the midwife who attends your birth. Each visit with your midwife is approximately 30-45 minutes in length. This provides the time to learn about pregnancy, birth and the newborn, and to enable parents to ask questions to make informed choices.
Following the birth visits take place at home for the first 1-2 weeks and focus primarily on the newborn, breastfeeding, and the mom's recovery.
Your maternity care is covered by British Columbia provincial health insurance (MSP) as long as you have a valid BC Care Card.
