Join us on August 29, 2017 for our next birth info session. These sessions, led by a midwife from our practice, focus on what care with a midwife looks like, birth place options, and include a display of the equipment that midwives bring to a home birth. If you are in our care and are trying to decide where to give birth, this is a valuable few hours to find out more. And if you aren’t in our care but want to know more about midwifery or home birth please attend! This session is free but we do need you to pre-register. Learn more HERE
Please note that our office will be closed on Monday September 4 for Labour Day. We will reopen Tuesday September 5 for regular office hours.
Have a safe and happy weekend!
The Roots of Empathy program is looking for a few more babies to be part of this enriching program for children. You would be visiting the same classroom once a month for the school year and sharing your baby’s development the children. This program helps to reduce bullying within the school and increase children’s sense of empathy. It is an incredibly rewarding experience.
