About Midwifery

Midwifery is an important part of maternal services within Saskatoon Health Region.

Midwifery care is based on a respect for pregnancy as a state of health, and childbirth as a normal life process. Every child-bearing family has a right to a safe, satisfying maternity experience with respect for human dignity and cultural variety.

A midwife:

  • Works with a pregnant woman and her family to provide care and support during pregnancy, labour, birth and the six weeks after the baby is born.
  • Is an expert in normal pregnancy, birth and for six weeks after birth.
  • Collaborates with doctors, nurses, alternative/complimentary therapists, pharmacists, lab and ultrasound technicians and others to provide the best care possible for the woman, her baby and her family.
