Equity Statement

The team at Malachite Midwives maintains a commitment to social justice. We recognize that discrimination and systemic marginalization of people based on ability, age, class, economic status, educational background, ethnicity, gender, language, race, religion, sexual orientation, and reproductive and parenting decisions, perpetuates social inequity. We seek to foster an equitable, anti-oppressive environment that is welcoming, safe, accessible and inclusive to all of our staff and clients.

Doing our Part for our Babies’ Environment

  • We use non-toxic cleaning products

  • We provide paperless information through our website and use electronic medical record transmissions

  • The paper (even toilet paper) in our office is 100% recycled

  • Our clients and their newborns use linens rather than paper drapes during their visits

  • Our front lawn has been converted into an organic vegetable & herb garden

  • We compost all food waste, which provides nourishment for our gardens

  • We strive to reduce medical waste by using many instruments that can be sterilized, rather than disposable equipment
