We want to thank Laura for her Google review of our service.

We want to thank Laura for her Google review of our service. Laura said the following "I am a client of access midwives with my first child born this June. My midwife team was amazing throughout the entire pregnancy. I can’t say enough good things about the care that we received at access midwives. I would definitely return should we decide to have another child. Overall I highly recommend this service. Hint, make sure you request a midwife in advance to better your chances of getting one."

Are you considering having your baby at home?

Are you considering having your baby at home? Did you know that there is no difference in the safety of births that take place in the home versus those planned to take place in the hospital? Here are some facts to ponder:
• Our midwives carry emergency equipment and are trained in its use.
• Two skilled attendants at every home birth mean that there is a primary care provider present for both mother and infant.
• Midwives are experts who continually assess their clients through pregnancy and labour to ensure that they are good candidates for a home birth.
• Midwives communicate with doctors regarding a client’s care whenever necessary.
• Midwives communicate with ambulance personnel and hospital staff regarding the details of home births, in case they are required. Learn more about home birth here. CLICK HERE
