Delivery

Midwives respect the right of the client to choose the birth setting. They hold admitting and discharge privileges in Hospitals, enabling them to provide care at home or in hospital.

At Maternity Tree we hold privileges to Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH) and Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH)When discussing home birth, midwives provide clients with research-based information. They address questions, concerns, and assess whether the client is a good canidate for home birth.

Midwives work collaboratively with obstetricians, nurses, family physicians, pediatricians, anaesthetists and lactation consultants, both in hospital setting and in the community.

Where you decide to have your baby is your choice.

After Delivery

After birth, a client will see the same midwife or midwives who provided care during their pregnancy.

Visits usually take place wherever the family resides. This may initially be in the hospital after a hospital birth, or at home birth or soon after a new family returns from hospital.

Midwives monitor the health of client and baby and provide breastfeeding support. They ensure the client is recovering physically, and emotionally.

After the first week or two, visits usually happen back in the clinic and continue to about 6 weeks postpartum when care is transferred back to the family physician.

Between visits, midwives provide 24/7 call coverage for urgent care or concerns
