Guelph Midwives was established in 1996 and consists of a team of registered midwives who work in a shared care model. Guelph Midwives offers personalized, professional and evidence-informed care to families in Guelph, Fergus, Elora and the surrounding area. Midwives provide comprehensive primary care during pregnancy, labour, birth and up to six weeks postpartum for low risk mothers and infants. The practice is located central to many amenities in Guelph, and is easily accessible. We share our location with a family physician’s office, dental office, postpartum resources, infant program and community prenatal class.

We also have a satellite clinic in Elora.


The practice is made up of registered midwives with varied backgrounds and international experience, offering care in four languages. Despite their diversity, the midwives share a strong belief in promoting normal birth and providing client-centered care. The team works in a shared care model, meaning that clients meet up to four midwives during their pregnancy and are ensured that a known care provider will be available for the birth of their baby. Guelph Midwives is a teaching practice. We are committed to working with student midwives to ensure more skilled maternity practitioners in Canada.


Guelph Midwives is continually accepting new clients into care. Midwives care for low risk pregnancies, for both first time parents and those who have had previous children. We recommend that you contact us early to ensure we can provide quality care, beginning in the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy.  We welcome your inquiries and enjoy caring for a diverse range of families.

“Thank you for empowering so many of us and for the excellent care of our babies. You are an amazing team of professionals! We were blessed to have you deliver both of our babies:)”

“Celeste, Alex, Hardeep (student midwife)and our doula, Nicole, were the most amazing birth team I could ever imagine. Calm, cool, collected and patient, these amazing women helped us welcome our daughter, Lilah Claire into the world, through a water birth in our home. They were so reassuring and caring throughout the entire experience and provided over-the-top home care afterward.I can’t imagine what we would have done without you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Iwona and Jennica (student midwife) helped me get over every hurdle I faced as I went through labour for the first time. The kindness and support I received all through my pregnancy,during my labour and during my aftercare was amazing. I LOVED my midwife experience; couldn’t have asked for a better birth. Thank you to every one in Pod A for helping me through this and I will see you all back in a few years !! -Justine

We had a wonderful experience with the Guelph Midwives. Our midwife was with us all day and the evening of Keira’s birth (C-section) and her guidance was irreplaceable! As well, the aftercare and advice provided was much appreciated.

I used the Guelph Midwives for both of my homebirths. I had a different team (pod) for each birth but still received the same attentive, informed care. They took their time with every appointment, ensuring I was completely comfortable and fully informed before I left. I never felt rushed during an appointment and never had to wait long to see my midwife. During the labour and delivery, they were extremely hands on, compassionate yet professional. They were extremely prepared and equipped and I never had a concern regarding my health or safety. The postpartum care was equally as attentive. The whole time, I felt they truly cared about my well-being as well that that of the baby. I will greatly miss them when my postpartum period with my last baby will be over!

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have known about midwives prior to giving birth. My experience with Team C and Guelph Midwives and the natural birth of my beautiful daughter have forever changed me. I will be telling every woman I know about midwives (specifically Guelph Midwives), how important they are, and what they do. If you want your birth to be all about your baby and you and what you want, then you will not go wrong in choosing midwifery care

The care our family received with Guelph Midwives was amazing. What a wonderful group of kind, compassionate, and caring women. I trusted completely in their knowledge and experience. I always felt comfortable to ask as many questions as I needed to and felt supported in my decisions about my pregnancy, birthing and mothering.
