The clinic offers two care models: midwives work in pairs or in pods.
The Pair Model
A team of two midwives will provide you with care in the pair model. Initially, you will meet your Coordinating Midwife during the first few appointments. As your pregnancy progresses, you will have the opportunity to build a relationship with both of your midwives. Both midwives will share the responsibility of providing your care. When you go into labor, the midwife who is on call at that time will be the primary midwife attending to your birth. After your baby is born, both of your midwives will continue to provide care for you and your baby during the six weeks following the birth.
The Pod Model
In the pod model, a team of three midwives will care about you. You will meet with your Coordinating Midwife for the initial appointments. The midwives in a pot model are working in rotation. They work for two months and then take a month off, ensuring that there are always two midwives available to care for you. Your on-call midwives will be available to address any needs or concerns you may have during this time. When you go into labor, the midwife who is on call at that time will be the primary midwife attending to your birth. Depending on the timing of your baby’s arrival, you may be cared for by one, two, or all three of your midwives during the six weeks after giving birth.
The Midwives Clinic offers online prenatal classes: Newborn 101, Newborn Refresh, TMC Prenatal Class, and Homebirth/Toronto Birth Centre Information Class.
