"I cannot say enough about both teams from each pregnancy I had. Elise and Connie were amazing during my first pregnancy and Simone was an Angel who if it weren’t for during birth I would not have gotten through it. She was my calm in the storm. My second time I dealt a lot with Tamara and she was absolutely fantastic in every way! She is so genuine and passionate about what she does that I would highly recommend this clinic!"

"Just here to leave a quick THANK YOU! Our perfect little angel is turning 4 months as of today… Our experience with access midwives (purple team) was absolutely phenomenal! Tamara,Erin, Simone and Nicole were amazing. Couldn’t have wished for a better team. We felt safe and genuinely cared for at all times. The Second I met every single one of them I knew it’s gonna be great and everything is gonna be okay! We were really excited and looking forward to have our little one at home. Well, he had other plans in mind and decided to surprise us in wanting to get out of there feet first… 😉 We had to quickly change plans, needed an ambulance,rush to the hospital and he was delivered by emergency c-section. Now that sounds pretty scary and traumatic. But I can tell everyone who reads this review, thanks to Tamara and Nicole IT WASNT!!! They’ve done an excellent job keeping everyone (daddy included) safe and calm. I am proud to say that even with the little twist at the end it was just PERFECT for us! It just shows that you can plan as much as you want but at the end of the day the little ones might have other plans. which isn’t a problem with the right support of your midwife!!! Letting go of plans and adapting to new challenges that day was actually the most empowering feeling I’ve ever felt. All that is left to say is THANK YOU to every single one of you! It was an amazing experience and I am more than thankful for your fantastic care!!! "

"I had an amazing experience with the pink team at Access Midwives. Their support and care throughout my pregnancy was above and beyond. My labour and delivery was extremely fast which created a stressful situation for a first time mom. Kristen was on call for my delivery and I could not have been happier with how motivating and empowering she was. Looking forward to delivering with Access Midwives again in the future!"

"I couldn’t be more happy with my experience at Access Midwives. The staff are always very pleasant and they genuinely care about you and your baby. They all made navigating pregnancy so much easier then I ever thought possible. When I had to get an emergency C-section, Genevieve sat beside me the whole time to support and reassure me. Pregnancy, especially your first one, can be overwhelming and scary at times. I am forever thankful for Genevieve, Connie and Lynlee for being apart of my journey and helping me deliver a beautiful, healthy baby girl! xo"

"This was my first child and my pregnancy journey was made so much easier with my midwives team. My midwives put my fears at ease and were extremely knowledgeable and supportive with my birthing plan and my inexperienced questions. My team allowed me to understand what was happening with my baby and body throughout my pregnancy and what I could expect for my labour and birth. My team was always 100% attentive to my needs and were calming during the birth of my first baby girl. Using Access Midwives allowed me to feel heard and that my time and pregnancy was important and did not feel like a clinical in and out doctors appointment. I will definitely be using midwives for my next child! Thank you so much for my midwives team Susana, Kristen, Elise, Emma! You ladies made my experience easy and amazing. "

"Thank you to the wonderful staff at Access Midwives; Jamie, Barbara and Sue for all of your help over the phone and in clinic. And of course thank you immensely to the awesome team of midwives we had as part of our journey for the second time! I was a patient at Access Midwives from 2018-2019 and 2020-2021 with the same team of midwives (Tamara, Simone, Erin and a student) for both of my pregnancies. From early pregnancy to 6 weeks postpartum, their attention to detail and always addressing my concerns and questions was great! During the pandemic, I felt very safe as they always followed protocols, ensured PPE was worn and sanitizing took place. Although my two birth stories were very different (first at 36w + 3d and second at 40w + 3d), the care I received throughout was incredible both times! The aftercare in home visits were very much appreciated, especially when you’re exhausted with a newborn and not up for leaving the house. Being in the care of a midwife allowed me to feel very comfortable and confident that my concerns (as a first or second time mom) would always be addressed. Each midwife took the time to get to know me (and my husband pre pandemic) and all of my visits were as thorough as I needed. I never felt like just another patient. My husband and I wouldn’t have it any other way and would recommend midwives to anyone, especially Access Midwives to anyone in the area!"

"I was fortunate to have Access Midwives for both of my pregnancies! I loved the personal care and positive atmosphere! I would not hesitate to refer anyone I know who is looking for care to Access Midwives. They are professional, caring, and wise and will ensure your pregnancy-related needs are met at all times! Just a tip - as soon as you find out you're pregnant register on their website. They fill up so quickly due to their great service!!!"

"I've had such an amazing experience at Access, as have all of my friends/coworkers who have been blessed to have them care for their pregnancies. They take care to ensure that not only yours and your babies physical health is maintained, but provide an all encompassing approach to your care. I have never been asked so many times how I, as well as my husband and older daughter, were handling the emotional aspects of the pregnancy and afterwards, with having a newborn. I left every appointment feeling confident and when I had questions or concerns they were always answered fully and without complaint and most importantly they never made me feel bad for calling with questions or paging when I felt I needed assessment or reassurance. I feel very blessed to have shared my pregnancy journey with the staff at Access, will continue to recommend them and will definitely be back!!!"

"Tamara, Simone and Erin were such an amazing team and I am so thankful I chose Access Midwives. They were amazing about taking the time to answer any and all questions during my pregnancy never making the appointments feel rushed. They had so many unique and more natural suggestions for symptoms that popped up like heartburn and restless legs. Loved having more natural alternatives that weren’t just running to typical solutions. They also provided so much support given the fact that being pregnant during a pandemic was exceptionally stressful. My delivery had to switch to OB care while in the hospital due to some risk factors, but Tamara still attended my daughter’s delivery and really helped direct my pushing so that I delivered her fast and efficiently. In addition our postpartum care was phenomenal. Having the midwives to answer all questions and concerns and such hands on care felt such a blessing. At my last appointment I was particularly impressed that Simone took time to discuss the risks of postpartum depression, particularly for new moms during the pandemic. It gave me the opportunity to have discussions with my family to make sure I had the right support in place. I 10/10 believe I picked the best care providers and feel so lucky I had such a great team with my first pregnancy."

"We had an exceptional experience with Access Midwives and the Purple team. I felt that Tamara, Simone, Erin and Nicole went above and beyond when it came to supporting us and brought forth their years of combined experience and knowledge. I always felt the team was available for our questions and any concerns and we felt very accommodated from prenatal to post with their thorough appointments. "

"My experience with Access Midwives was nothing short of amazing. As a young mom, I was nervous to find out i was pregnant. Elise, Emma & Kristen were absolutely amazing throughout my entire pregnancy. They made me feel comfortable, safe, cared for and answered any questions i had. The 6 week postpartum care was also great. I got lots of checkup phone calls and a few house visits which helps alot after giving birth! I highly recommend Access Midwives to anybody who is expecting! "

"I had a wonderful experience with Access Midwives during my pregnancy and 6 weeks postpartum with my first child. We dealt with Amanda and Rachel for my whole pregnancy. Both ladies very knowledgeable, and supportive. Half way through my pregnancy, the pandemic started and although my husband was no longer able to join me for my appointments, I still felt taken care of by both ladies. I was going to Mac every two weeks for ultrasounds and they were up to date on making and changing appointments for me. The receptionists there were also easy and friendly to deal with! I wanted either Rachel or Amanda present for my birth (As they knew all the details of my pregnancy), but due to their schedules at the hospital at the time, were not able to be there. I was nervous dealing with another midwife as she didn’t know my history. My water broke at 5am and after confirming at the hospital later that morning, I was asked if I wanted to stay at the hospital or go home to wait for the contractions to come naturally. I opted to go home so we can be nice and comfy until we were ready to be admitted. Contractions started in the afternoon and were getting heavy by 9pm. They tell you to wait until you get the 4-1-1 contractions but that didn’t happen for me as they were all over the place. We called Erin twice to let her know (that I was in pain and uncomfortable) and she assured to wait until they were 411. From 11pm-midnight the pain was so bad I was going to the washroom thinking I had to go and was pushing instead, blood followed. I was screaming in my bed and didn’t want to wait for the 411 to come. My husband finally called one more time to update her and she advised us to go straight to the hospital. When we got there, I was 10cm dilated and had to push right away (no time to check in or change!). Although the earlier dealings with Erin weren’t as great (as I knew I should have gone to the hospital earlier), when it was time to push, she was amazing and knew what she was doing. Our baby girl arrived within one hour of arriving at the hospital. Erin was great and we Thank her so much for her support that night and ensuring a smooth delivery and after care. My postpartum support was with Rachel and I can not thank her enough. As new parents, you always worry with your first child and want to make sure you are doing everything right. Rachel’s support was invaluable and she reminded us that we were doing a great job. She was great with Emilia and helped me with breastfeeding positions. It was wonderful to have in home visits with her during a pandemic. Her visits were never timed, didn’t seem rushed. She would be there for as long as you needed her and always answered our questions (no matter how silly they sounded)! I hope to deal with her again in the future. I recommended Access Midwives to friends and to my sister who also dealt with Amanda and Rachel during her pregnancy. Thank you again!"

"If any sentence can sum up my experience with Access Midwives is that I am most definitely coming back to them if/when I have my second child. I was under the care of team Blue (Lynlee, Genevieve, and Connie) who were PHENOMENAL. As a first time mom with a Type A personality, I had a lot of anxiety being pregnant and moving into motherhood. The team and staff at Access Midwives are always very friendly and knowledgeable. My delivery went as smoothly as it could go under the guidance of Lynlee and I felt so much compassion during my pre-labour all the way through to our final 6 week visit from the whole team. They were amazing. Knowing that there is not only 1 way to raise a child, my only constructive criticism is for the team to communicate on what they tell their clients. There were mixed reviews on when to introduce the bottle (because I wanted to make sure my son was willing to take a bottle in case I was unavailable). Overall, I am extremely satisfied with their care. Thank you so much! "

"Wonderful midwives and pregnancy experience. I had intense anxiety about labour and birth, and I felt immediately taken care of and at ease with my midwives - Amanda, Beth & Rachel. They are all amazing and took care of me and my family so well through a 40 hour labour process. I highly recommend Access Midwives to any expecting woman!"

"Just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU to the Blue Team for the incredible care we received during my pregnancy and at my daughter Everly’s birth! Connie was amazing during the delivery day and was so supportive of the Hypnobirthing I was practicing. It was a great day and we’re so happy she was able to be there with us!"

"I've had two babies delivered through access midwives. What a great experience through pregnancy, delivery, and after. Very professional, knowledgeable, and caring. I just had my second baby, and a midwife named Simone made this experience amazing. I have never received such care, I felt like she went above and beyond than what I ever expected. She gave me so much knowledge, and support through it all. She did most of my appointments through pregnancy and after birth. I felt the baby and I were very much cared for. Tamara helped me through labour by answering my phone calls every two hours through panic haha, and delivered my baby. I have no complaints, and if I ever have a third baby, I will be coming back. Thank you to an amazing team. Thank you Simone for always going above and beyond."

"Simone and Tamara were my midwives. Both of them were incredible. I was so impressed with the amount of experience they had, along with how kind, compassionate, and thorough they were. At each visit, I felt like any question was welcome and was answered thoroughly. I cannot thank them enough for the care they provided me during pregnancy, labour, and postpartum. I truly felt like they were a part of our family experience, cheering us on and joining in the excitement the whole way. I know they see and deliver so many babies weekly, but I truly felt like I was number one in their eyes. Having such frequent and thorough care the whole way through was a true gift. Thank you, thank you thank you! The only constructive criticism I can give is that I was surprised at how little they knew about Natural Family Planning and it's credibility. After delivery, it was recommended to me to go on birth control. This was very surprising to me, as they had previously always offered such natural options when it came to medications and interventions. Birth control is so harsh on a woman's system, and Natural Family Planning is just as effective, without the nasty side effects. But I didn't feel my midwives acknowledged this research. My husband and I use a method called Creighton/NaPro Technology, which has also helped us in our fertility journey by monitoring progesterone before and during pregnancy. I know this made the difference in carrying our baby to term, (as we had previously miscarried likely due to low progesterone) but the midwives weren't as knowledgeable in this area. My recommendation would be for the midwives to take a course in Natural Family Planning, particularly Creighton (NaPro Technology) so that they can improve their amazing care even further. "

"Great overall experience with my midwives at this practice. Appointments were thorough, staff is friendly and midwives are caring and more than competent. I've recommended them to multiple friends who have also had good experiences. I will definitely be back when we have another :)"

"We came to access midwives because we needed to give birth at McMaster, and a friend of ours that had twins recommended them. And we are so thankful that she did. Rachel, Amanda, and Connie were our team, and they were amazing. We had some extra medical issues that needed to be navigated, and the girls were not possessive, but rather, always concerned about our health above all else, and even referred us to a medical team at McMaster for some pre-birth treatments. They were there for us 24/7, and really helped us to weed through the mountain of information out there for new parents. And in the end, we ended up having to have an emergency c-section anyway, but the midwives were still there by our side all the way through, and for months after, making sure that we not only made it through the labour, but through the first steps of new parenthood. We aren't likely to have another child, but if we did, we would most definitely be doing so with Access Midwives."

"Very satisfied with my experience as a first time mom with Access Midwives. I would absolutely recommend them. Amanda, Rachel and Sarah were absolutely amazing to me throughout my journey. Shout out to Simone as well who helped me through a somewhat difficult birth. They were always available and that help me a lot as this was my first time pregnant and I didn't know what to expect majority of the time. They were excellent at calming my fears and ensuring baby and I were ok. The first few weeks postpartum was more challenging than my entire pregnancy and these ladies ensured I was well taken care of. Not to mention the house calls in the middle of a pandemic. Cheers to you ladies. You guys are awesome!!!!"

"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. "
