If you are considering having a midwife care for you during your pregnancy and attend your birth, there are three clinics in Hamilton to serve your needs. Call them as soon as you can, though; midwives are in very high demand and waiting till you are 3 or 4 months old to find a midwife may be too late.
You might want to call a midwifery clinic before you call your partner or your family to share your good news! I’m only sort of kidding.
Unlike with OBs and other specialist medical professionals, you do not need a referral to a midwife. Unlike other regions in Ontario like Toronto, you do not need to choose a midwifery clinic based on geography: you do not need to choose a particular clinic just because they reside in the same area of the city that you do.
It is recommended that you contact all midwifery clinics initially. In the event that one of more clinics has it’s full compliment of clients for your approximate time of birth, you will have not have to start over, potentially losing time in the inquiry process, to find a place at another clinic. When you choose your preferred clinic after they confirm that they can offer you support, just call the other clinics and let them know you have found a place in another clinic.
