Can I safely deliver my baby in my home?

"The best available evidence from North America and international studies demonstrates that midwife attended home births are associated with optimal labour and birth outcomes. Midwife attended planned home births in Canada are associated with fewer obstetrical interventions and no increase in maternal/fetal/neonatal mortality or morbidity compared to births planned to be in hospital."
- Position Statement on Home Birth, from The Canadian Association of Midwives

What to expect from midwifery care

Informed choice: discussions throughout the childbearing year regarding diagnostic tests and procedures commonly used in pregnancy, labour or postpartum.

Continuity of care: midwives in Saskatchewan typically work in teams of 2–3 midwives.

Choice of birthplace: discussion regarding suitability and preference for choice of birthplace (home, hospital or birth center).

Collaborative care: as primary health care providers, midwives can consult with other health care professionals when necessary. Shared care with a physician may be possible in certain circumstances.

Accessibility: your midwife (or the midwives in the same team) is available after hours (24/7) for urgent concerns.

Postpartum support: postpartum home visits in the first week postpartum to monitor the wellbeing of mother and baby, as well as for breast feeding support.

Home visits: typically one prenatal home visit and several postpartum home visits.
