The theme for this year's International Day of the Midwife is "Midwives, Mothers & Families: Partners for Life".
When we reached out to the families in the Headwater Hills region to participate in a project supporting our local midwifery practice Midwives of Headwater Hills, we were overwhelmed by the response.
To the incredible Midwives of Headwater Hills, both past and present thank you for all that you do! We look forward to celebrating with you at your Annual Picnic at the end of the month.
This blog is for you and it is from the very babies you welcomed into the world!
As midwives, we occasionally encounter confusion about the role of a midwife compared to the role of a doula. Quite often clients have questions about how our services may overlap and whether or not the presence of a doula would be necessary or helpful when they are also cared for by a midwife.
