The MABC educates the public about midwifery care while supporting the growing number of midwives across the province. Registered Midwives are a funded part of the health care system in BC and are experts in normal birth. With extensive training that focuses on pregnancy, birth and the postpartum for both mom and baby, midwives are a safe and recognized choice for maternity care in BC , across Canada and around the world.
Midwifery services are covered by the BC provincial health plan and referrals from a family physician, or other practitioner, are not necessary - simply call up the clinics in your area to book yourself an initial appointment. For more information please see What is a Midwife.
