Find a Midwife

Saskatchewan Midwifery Sites

In Saskatchewan, Registered Midwives are currently employed in Saskatoon, Regina, Fort Qu’Appelle, and Swift Current. These practices serve both the urban and surrounding rural communities. To request midwifery care for your pregnancy, contact the practice nearest you. There is also an online SHA Midwifery Referral Form that can be found here.

We recognize that many communities in Saskatchewan currently do not have the option of midwifery care. We will continue to advocate for expansion of the profession within the province. We encourage you to contact your MLA if you would like to have midwifery care available in your area.

What to expect from midwifery care

Informed choice: Clients are seen as the primary decision makers of their pregnancy. Throughout their care there will be discussions on normal and abnormal conditions of pregnancy, diagnostic tests and procedures, what to expect for labour and birth, breastfeeding, etc.

Continuity of care: Midwives work in primary or shared care models, which means clients are seen by the same 2-3 midwives for the duration of care. Care is for the entire pregnancy, labour and birth, and up to 6 weeks postpartum.

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 midwives are available after hours (24/7) for emergent concerns.

Postpartum support: Midwives will follow their clients for 6 weeks postpartum to monitor the wellbeing of the client and their baby. Postpartum visits may be done in person at home or in the clinic, over the phone, or in partnership with community resources for those living in rural areas.

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

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."
