We care for you
“Collaborative maternity care” is what we do. Our team is comprised of midwives, family physicians, an obstetrician, and lactation consultants who provide interdisciplinary care to clients and newborns. Registered midwives and family physicians who specialize in low-risk delivery are on call in 12- or 24-hour shifts. If your risk profile changes, we’ll consult with local specialists and expand your care plan as necessary, and we will stay involved in a supporting role. Other features of our unique team include home visits after delivery, and universal lactation consultant support for up to six weeks after your birth.
Prenatal care starts very soon after you get a positive pregnancy test. Make sure you call us as soon as possible so we can offer you lab standard tests and ultrasounds, some of which are time-sensitive. After the initial consultation visit, all care happens at our Port Moody clinic.
We will be there with you from the time you are in active labour until after your little one is safely in your arms.
We care for both you and your newborn from the early hours after your baby is born until your baby is six weeks old. We’ll do our best to connect your family with a family doctor if you don’t have one. In the postpartum period, we also perform well-client care such as contraception discussions/prescribing and Pap smears.
Inlet Birth is staffed with many practitioners skilled in breastfeeding support. We also host weekly postpartum sessions where new parents experiencing feeding concerns can be seen by one of our lactation consultants at no cost to families.
Inlet Community Birth Program rests on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in in this territory.
