Blue Heron has a Facebook page. We post news about events, information sessions, and other useful tidbits on this page, so it’s a great way to keep informed about what is happening at Blue Heron. Hop over to it and join in on the conversation!
There was a great piece in the Waterloo Chronicle about Blue Heron Midwives on Tuesday!

Blue Heron Midwives is pleased to announce that we now have purchased two new portable water tubs available for free client use! If you are interested in a home water birth please talk to us about this option.
Note: We are having an information night on home water births (and home births in general). Come on out to find out more information.
It can be fun for a child to come along for a visit to the midwife — they are often interested in how baby sister or brother is doing! However, waiting for the the appointment can be a bit boring for them. We hope that our new play area will help with that. We have books, toys, and bright decorations at one end of our waiting room so that ‘big sister’ or ‘big brother’ can have some fun while waiting to hear the baby’s heartbeat.
