Expanding Midwifery

  • Investing $1.75 million annually to expand midwifery to additional communities, including the Annapolis Valley and Cape Breton.
  • Increasing the number of practicing midwives in the province from 16 to 24.

Nova Scotia’s primary care system also relies on the services of specialized health professionals who augment the care provided in the hospital setting. Registered midwives offer expert care throughout pregnancy, birth, and early infancy, focusing on low-risk pregnancy, childbirth and newborn care both at home and within hospitals. Access to a midwife during pregnancy has a demonstrable impact on birth outcomes.

A Liberal Government will invest $1.75 million annually to expand midwifery to additional communities, including the Annapolis Valley and Cape Breton, increasing the total amount of practicing midwives in the province from 16 to 24.
