SAGE HILLS COMMUNITY MIDWIVES
Experts in facilitating healthy pregnancy and birth
In BC, 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. All midwifery services are covered by your BC Care Card. No referral is required.
Midwifery emphasizes the natural ability to experience birth with minimum intervention, and the principle that all clients are to be respected and supported in all stages of care.
LABOUR AND BIRTH
We offer choice of birthplace; hospital or home. Midwives work with you to create an empowering and positive labour and birthing experience.
AFTER BABY IS BORN
Let us come to you! Our team offers home visits for the initial postpartum period. We will then continue to care for you and your baby for a full six weeks postpartum.
DURING YOUR PREGNANCY
We offer comprehensive 30-60 minute antenatal appointments. This allows us time to provide personalized care. This offers you the opportunity to build a relationship with our team. Registered midwives can order all standard pregnancy lab work, testing and ultrasounds.
We practice evidence-based, client-centered maternity and newborn care and are an established part of the BC health care system. As a small team of three midwives, clients in our care will get to know each of us throughout their prenatal care, and have one of us at their delivery.
Registered Midwife, non-practicing until November 2019
Lee, Jessica and Natalie were all involved in my third pregnancy. I love them all and they all went above and beyond to inform, support, and to be flexible with me. I felt valued, cherished and graciously taken care of during the entire experience! If you have never tried midwifery care but are feeling drawn to it, you will be exceptionally satisfied with the depth and level of care provided by Sage Hills Community Midwives!
