MIDWIVES ARE EXPERTS IN HEALTHY PREGNANCY AND BIRTH

"In British Columbia, registered midwives offer primary maternity care to healthy pregnant clients and their newborn babies from early pregnancy, through labour and birth, until about six weeks following delivery. They practice evidence-based, client-centered maternity and newborn care and are an established part of the British Columbia health care system.

Midwives listen, observe, educate, guide and care. They order and interpret tests and screen for physical, psychological, emotional and social health. They are with clients during pregnancy, labour, and birth, normal and complicated. They catch babies. They do home visits after the baby is born. They help with breastfeeding and adjusting to life with a new baby. They work together and with other health professionals." MABC

Bloom is excited about having brought midwifery care to Dawson Creek and the surrounding areas.

Pregnancy

 

"During pregnancy, midwife visits happen about as often as visits with physicians. Most visits in the first part of pregnancy are scheduled every three to six weeks and last between 30-60 minutes. In the third trimester, visits are scheduled weekly during the last month of pregnancy.

Longer visits allow for physical, emotional and social health assessments while enabling the development of a trusting relationship between midwife and client.

Midwives offer a complete panel of prenatal laboratory tests, genetic screening and diagnosis options, ultrasound imaging, and many other tests and procedures.

During pregnancy, clients will meet all the midwives who share in their care so that familiarity is established prior to birth.

Your midwife or midwives will always be available 24/7."
