<p>  Your best bet is to go to either of these websites and call the numbers there. Because midwifery is funded by the gov't you have to go through the health authorities.  I'd suggest calling the day your period is due if you're interested as they book up very fast - and have regulations about who they can accept as patients.</p>

<p>Oh! As for the OB at HSC - i've honestly not heard good things about HSC (Women's) in regards to care - not that its BAD care per se, but just that they are so busy and overwhelmed that you are really just another 'number'.  I've heard MUCH better things about  St.Boniface from many of my friends who've delivered at both.</p>

<p>Thanks, I will check those websites. I don't even know if I will be able to use a midwife but I want to look into it. My first was 4 weeks early and my second was 5 weeks early. My second was born at St. Boniface and spent 2 weeks there, it was not a good experience. We want to use HSC because my husband works there and can come visit while working.</p>

<p>If you're going to HSC, I highly recommend Dr. Morris. She can be very crunchy if you make your wishes to her well known. Plus, she is the head of obstetrics there. ;) I got to catch our baby who was birthed standing up, and my wife had no pelvic exams whatsoever! (Upon request of course.)</p>
