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."

We love getting baby stories, if you want to share your experience with us, please email your story and photos to babystories@accessmidwives.com >>> https://www.accessmidwives.com/baby/mckillop-family.html

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."

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
