Midwifery services Midwives are autonomous, primary healthcare professionals in Quebec’s public health system, like family doctors. They provide comprehensive care throughout maternity, with a global approach of relational continuity and care. They give:

  • Comprehensive care from the beginning of the pregnancy to 6 weeks after giving birth for mother and newborn;
  • Information sessions on services available to the public;
  • Complementary exams (lab tests, prescriptions, ultrasounds, etc.);
  • Prenatal classes;
  • Home birth and hospital birth during the first phase, then at birthing centre after it has opened;
  • Home visits after birth;
  • Breast-feeding support.

All services are covered by RAMQ.

Midwives work in collaboration with medical teams for any consultations and transfers needed during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. Women should be able to choose the conditions in which their pregnancy and birth take place. Midwife and birthing centre services adopt a comprehensive and feminist approach to health.
