Hospital & Home Births

labour in tubHarmony Midwives have hospital privileges at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster.  While a majority of midwifery clients choose to birth in hospital, many women are interested in exploring home birth as an option.

Available evidence confirms that for low-risk women, a planned home birth with trained attendants is a safe and viable option.  For references and more information, please see the Statement on Home Birth and Place of Birth Handbook produced by the College of Midwives of BC.
