COVID-19: Frequently Asked Questions for Midwifery Clients

 

The College of Midwives of Ontario has answered Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for midwives and their clients to provide them with appropriate information and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic. These FAQs are now available on the College’s website at https://www.cmo.on.ca/covid-19/ 


Midwives of Muskoka is implementing strict measures to prevent infection by coronavirus in our pregnant clients.  We are asking you to work together with us to minimize risk to yourselves and the community.


At this time, you can expect a reduced in-person visitation schedule, shorter visits and some telephone contact  from your midwife while infection concerns remain heightened.  We ask that if you are given an in-person appointment you attend without family or friends, including children, do not arrive before your scheduled appointment time, and wash your hands upon arriving.  We are disinfecting surfaces and equipment between appointments so you may have to wait if you arrive early.  Our administrative staff will not be interacting directly with the public.  Our waiting area and lending library are closed.  These measures are necessary to protect your health by reducing your interaction with other clients and clinic personnel. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             


Welcome to our Website!


Midwives of Muskoka (MoM) has been serving families in Muskoka since 2005.  Over 1000 Muskoka babies have been welcomed into our hands! 


Ontario Midwives provide primary care for women with low risk pregnancies.  Our philosophy is based on informed choice by the woman, choice of birthplace, and continuity of care.

As a midwifery client, we hope you will develop a trust and confidence in your midwife and in yourself that will enable you to take responsibility for your own well-being. You will make the decisions and choices about your care based on information and education received from your midwife and other sources, and you will receive support for the choices you make.


In Ontario, the practice of midwifery is based on the principles of:
· Continuity of care with a small group of midwives
· Informed choice for decision-making
· Choice of birthplace

MoM midwives have hospital privileges at:
· Huntsville District Memorial Hospital
· Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital
· South Muskoka Memorial Hospital

Midwives are regulated health care professionals who provide primary care to women throughout pregnancy, labour and birth, and to mother and baby for six weeks following the birth.

Midwifery services are fully funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care.
