Guide to Choosing a Midwife

We recommend you interview several midwives from different practices before engaging someone. Please refer to the comprehensive Guide to Choosing a Midwife (attached at the bottom of this page) for questions to ask midwives you interview.

This guide can be used when selecting any birth caregiver - an obstetrician, birth centre, hospital based homebirth program or independent midwife.

Also at the bottom of this page is a referral guide if you have a concern or complaint about your midwife.
