“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is also about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
– Barbara Katz Rothman
At Open Door Midwifery you will find an intimate group of registered midwives with diverse backgrounds who support each other while practicing and pursuing our professional and personal interests. The midwives at Open Door Midwifery are active in the women’s health movement and work to improve women’s access to quality midwifery care, both in British Columbia and internationally.
Our care is based on a respect for pregnancy as a state of health and childbirth as a normal physiologic process. The promotion of wellness throughout the childbearing cycle is central to midwifery care and we focus on preventive care and the appropriate use of technology. The care we provide is continuous, personalized and non-authoritarian and responds to your emotional, social and cultural, as well as physical needs.
Fundamental to the care you will receive with Open Door Midwifery is our commitment to the belief that a woman’s caregivers respect and support her, while working in partnership with her so that she may give birth safely, with strength and dignity.
