About our Practice...

Terra Nova Midwifery accepts patients living in Richmond, BC and the immediate surrounding area.  We offer both hospital and home birth.  We hold hospital privileges at Richmond Hospital. 

 

We work as a team of four midwives (2 full time, 2 part time), caring for women and babies from early pregnancy, through labour and birth, up until 6 weeks after birth.  We enjoy the opportunity to really get to know each and every family in our care.  As our patient you benefit from seamless continuity of care and having a known care-provider with you at your birth. 

 

We care for healthy, low-risk pregnancies.  Our team works cooperatively with the nurses and physicians in our community.  We are able to consult and refer to specialists in pregnancy, or during labour should concerns or emergencies arise.  

We offer longer prenatal appointments to allow time to address your individual concerns and questions.  We strongly believe in providing you up-to-date, evidence-based information and supporting your informed choices for your maternity care. 

After birth we provide comprehensive care for both mothers and babies.  We have extensive knowledge and experience supporting breastfeeding, monitoring newborn and maternal health, teaching newborn care and promoting a healthy postpartum adjustment. Post-natal care is offered at your home during the first week, then appointments back in our clinic at 2, 4 and 6 weeks postpartum.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
