Our Midwifery Story

In 2016, we launched a different kind of birth center; one that brings people together from both sides of the border to build strong families with healthy outcomes.

Welcoming Birth Center

Our team wants you to feel at home, in our vibrant, newly renovated space. Our clean, private rooms enable you to bring your baby into the world, naturally and surrounded by the people you love. We welcome every kind of family.


Care. Just for You.

Your needs, your care. Our midwives’ mission. Our experienced midwives support your vision of your birth journey.

We strive always to give you the best experience through as little intervention as possible, whether at home, in a clinic or if needed, in a hospital.
