- Emergency Care -

Your midwife and assistants are trained in CPR and Neonatal Resuscitation and are prepared for emergency situations.

At any point during care – whether prenatally, during labor and birth or postpartum, if circumstances arise requiring medical attention, you will be given options and support to facilitate medical consultation or transfer of care, depending on which is needed.

In the event that care must be transfered, your midwife will accompany you, facilitate transfer of care, and be available for counsel, support and as a comforting presence. Postpartum follow up care is still completed with midwife.
