New Birth Centre for Ottawa

Expectant moms in the Ottawa region will soon benefit from a new birth centre, scheduled to open summer 2013.

The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre will provide mothers-to-be and their families with a broad range of programs and services led by midwives, with special attention to meeting the needs of the Francophone population. The centre expects to assist with 450-500 births each year, offering more choice as to where women can deliver healthy babies, while helping to keep hospital beds free to focus on high-risk births.

Creating midwife-led birth centres is part of the McGuinty government’s Action Plan for Health Care and its commitment to providing Ontarians with the right care, at the right time, in the right place.
