We want to thank Victoria for sharing her Baby Story with Access Midwives

We want to thank Victoria for sharing her Baby Story with Access Midwives. This is what Victoria said "My midwifery team consisted of Connie, Elise and Kristen. I gave birth to my daughter, Oceana, February 14th, 2016 with Access Midwives. I gave birth to my son, Joseph, November 4th 2018. I have received exceptional care with both pregnancies! Despite being quite the sick expecting mom, the midwifery team always made sure I was comfortable and relaxed- doing everything possible to help my situation in office and in hospital. I absolutely loved being able to call the Access Midwives pager line at any given time, day or night, if I had any concerns for myself or the baby during pregnancy and after birth. Having a midwife is a much more personal experience rather than going with an OB as I had with my first pregnancy." Check out the full story by clicking the link below. We love getting baby stories, if you want to share your experience with us, please email your story and photos to babystories@accessmidwives.com >>>

Some people think that if they get a midwife that they will have to have their baby at home.

Some people think that if they get a midwife that they will have to have their baby at home. We asked Tamara Youngberg about this myth. This is what Tamara said "Midwives offer the choice of birthplace which means that you can choose to have your baby at home or at the hospital. If you choose the home option, our midwives can provide care safely for you there. You can also choose to have your baby at McMaster or St. Joseph's. We are well integrated with the medical team at both hospitals, so no matter what your reason for choosing a midwife, you should know that you have a choice." Getting a midwife in Ontario is FREE and covered by OHIP. You don't require a doctor's referral. All you have to do if request one.

We want to thank Stephanie for sharing her Baby Story with Access Midwives.

We want to thank Stephanie for sharing her Baby Story with Access Midwives. This is what Stephanie said "My partner and I had gone through two years of fertility treatment, and when we finally found out that we were pregnant, we were so excited, but also terrified. Access Midwives was amazing during our entire journey; from prenatal care, to delivery, to postnatal care, we felt so so supported and reassured the entire time. We had no idea what midwife care would feel or look like, but they answered every question, and we always left feeling positive. Tara, Erin, Simone and Sarah (a student at the time) were all so warm and patient with us (especially with the millions of questions that we had), and Simone and Sarah made me feel so empowered and cared for during the delivery process."

Are you pregnant and concerned about pain management if you work with a midwife?

Are you pregnant and concerned about pain management if you work with a midwife? We asked Tamara Youngberg about this. This is what Tamara said "During labour if you choose to have your baby at home, we can help with different techniques that help you to cope with the discomfort. Techniques like massage, position changes, and water therapy can all be really effective in helping women deal with labour pain. If you choose to have a hospital birth, you have the option of an epidural. We believe that women have a choice and we wanna support you in making the best choices."
