Where do midwives provide care? Can I birth at home? Can I birth in the hospital?

Midwives support women to give birth at home, in the hospital or in an out-of-hospital centre, depending on the woman's preference and health status.  Prenatal visits take place at the Malachite house, while early postpartum visits usually take place in the woman's home, with later visits occurring again at the clinic.  We are specialists in out-of-hospital births, but also maintain hospital privileges and provide complete labour and birth care at Kelowna General Hospital.
