Pregnancy follow-up and women’s health

Throughout your pregnancy you have access to a variety of health professionals who will help care for you and your baby. There is also a whole range of services available that can help you through this important period of your life.

Health professionals who provide prenatal care and attend deliveries include some family doctors, midwives, and obstetrician/gynecologists. Since 2007, primary health care nurse practitioners have also been authorized to provide pre- and post-natal care. In addition, you will meet nurses at your prenatal classes, your CLSC, in medical clinics or hospital high-risk pregnancy clinics (GAREs), and during your labour and delivery.

If you’re thinking about giving birth at home or at a birthing centre, contact your local CLSC at the start of your pregnancy to find out if midwife services are available in your area. .
