At Calgary Midwives Collective we are committed to providing exceptional and inclusive client-centered care in a warm and welcoming environment. We strive to be an evolving, supportive practice with great resources for midwives, pregnant people, and their families.
We agree to respect and nurture our clients as well as each other and we believe in everyone's need to grow, learn, and change at their own pace.
Most importantly, we agree to dream and to support our clients with care, love, and knowledge as they bring new lives into the world.
Registered Midwives in Canada are autonomous primary health care professionals. Midwifery services are fully covered by Alberta's public health system. Midwives care for low risk pregnant people and their babies from conception through to 6 weeks postpartum. The care provided by midwives is comprehensive and evidence-based. The partnership created between you and your midwife is strong, intimate and affords you the opportunity for informed choice and a client-directed pregnancy and birth.
At Calgary Midwives Collective we are committed to providing spectacular client-centered care. We honour balance, truth, integrity, and hard work. All of us are committed to inclusivity and strive to make everyone feel welcomed and comfortable in our space. You can help yourself to tea while you wait for your appointment, browse our books and birth products, or make use of our baby feeding room stocked with snacks and baby changing essentials.
We love our home in the eclectic community of Bridgeland with its plethora of locally owned shops and restaurants and its welcoming village-like vibe. Located centrally, close to downtown and the c-train, our clinic is easy to access and there is free street parking on 1st Avenue as well as in the surrounding neighbourhood.
We are so excited to welcome you to our family!

frequently asked questions
What is a midwife?
A midwife is a low-risk primary maternity care provider. They are specialists in normal pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care.
What is the difference between a midwife and a doula?
Midwives are primary care providers with a degree in Midwifery. They provide prenatal and postnatal care and manage labours and deliveries.
Can I have a midwife and a doctor?
If you are seeing a midwife for your prenatal care you should not also see a doctor. Should any complications arise during the course of your pregnancy that fall outside the scope of midwifery care, your midwife will consult with a physician and collaborate with them as appropriate.
Can I still have my baby in the hospital?
Yes! Midwives are the only care providers who provide choice of place of birth. We attend births in homes, at the birth center, and in the hospitals. Where you give birth is your choice. While we do maintain privileges at all of the hospitals in Calgary, midwives at the Calgary Midwives Collective work out of Rockyview General Hospital and Foothills Medical Center.
