We care for you
“Collaborative maternity care” is what we do. Our team is comprised of midwives, family physicians, perinatal nurses, 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. Clients will be offered either group-based care in the Connecting Pregnancy model, or individual visits. 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 choice of birth place, home visits after delivery, and 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. We offer both group care in the Connecting Pregnancy model and individual visits. Prenatal care happens at our Port Moody clinic.
Whether you plan to give birth at home or in hospital, 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 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.
