“My wonderful, caring midwives were made even more exceptional by their collaboration. We felt so fortunate to benefit from their complementary knowledge and experiences. We were also grateful for their efforts to involve our older child, who, reluctant at first, looked forward to every midwife visit, and ultimately loved becoming an older brother."

- Alena

“I love these women like members of my family. From my online submission I felt so wonderfully supported, never mind the care I received during 4 pregnancies (including one loss). My amazing midwives always put my fears, concerns or anxieties at bay, answering any and all questions and giving the utmost care. Appointments were like catching up with a friend, and I looked forward to each and every one, while dreading the final appointment knowing I had to say goodbye! I’m so grateful for the team at the Midwives Collective and for having the opportunity to have them care for my family during the most important times in our lives. We speak of them and their amazing job often in our home. "

“Best decision ever going with this group of phenomenal midwives. Our hero midwife on call for the big day was absolutely fantastic, and Baby Jack was born safe and sound. Our midwife’s dedication and presence during labour was amazing, and we so enjoyed seeing her postpartum as well. I looked forward to each and every appointment! They made us feel heard, supported, and taken care of, (with the perfect amount of light heartedness in there too). I am still truly sad that our time together is finished (for now!). Count yourself truly lucky if you find yourself in the capable hands of any of these amazing women - they will make your journey even more special. Thanks doesn’t even begin to cover it.”

"This is my second pregnancy but first with this midwife. I have had a lot going on both medically and personally and my midwife has been so amazing and supportive while at the same time factual and to the point, easing my concerns with info and facts."

"My midwife is the most amazing person/midwife who helped to make my pregnancy, birth and the six weeks after my boy was born, so incredible. She’s so knowledgeable, kind, gentle and easy to be completely comfortable with. I am so lucky to have had her through the most wonderful experience of my life and am so thankful to her."

- Dana

"The care my midwife gave our family was second to none. She helped me birth my first son into this world, but it was the birth of my second son where I am forever in debt to her. We discovered my son was breech. She advocated for me for a week with obs. She made sure I understood every step and when I went in labour and the only choice left was a C-section she gave me emotional support. I had never been in surgery before, stepped into an operating room or had an epidural. All of these things terrified me. As I was about to get the epidural, I lost it emotionally, I was crying and shaking from fear and she held me and talked me through it. I don't know how I would have gotten through that without her. She cared not only for my experience but that of my older children. She is caring, compassionate and the most knowledgeable medical practitioner I have ever encountered."

Meg’s Story

“I always looked forward to
seeing her at each appointment
and enjoyed discussing
the progress of the baby
(I even miss seeing her today!).”

Annette’s Story

 “I was very nervous to leave my
baby and the comfort of my birthing
space but my midwife, as always
with her calm demeanor explained to
me what was going to happen.”

Alena’s Story

“During my labour, I watched my
midwife carefully for any signs
of concern, and saw only
encouragement and confidence
reflected back.”

We recognize that we practice on the traditional land of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples, known today as the Esquimalt, Songhees, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations, whose relationships with these lands continue through the present day. We acknowledge that the traditional birthing practices of these Nations were destroyed by colonization. We commit to being mindful of our roles in ongoing colonialism in birth work and perinatal care, to decolonizing our own practice, and to providing safe and culturally-sensitive care to our Indigenous clients and their families. In solidarity with the ongoing work of decolonization of midwifery practice in BC and throughout Canada, we offer our support to our indigenous colleagues working as midwives throughout BC, and welcome any feedback on our own practices as midwives of settler backgrounds.
