Guelph Midwives has been providing obstetrical and newborn care in Wellington County for over twenty years. We have had the privilege of supporting mothers and welcoming over 5000 newborns into the world. We are a group of 9 Registered Midwives from diverse backgrounds offering personalized, professional and evidence-informed care. We have enjoyed providing collaborative care within the community. Our clinics are located in lovely downtown Guelph’s Community Health Centre and at our sister location in Elora.
Guelph midwives acknowledges that we are situated on the historic territories of the Attawandaron people and in the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation within the lands of the Between the Lakes Treaty of 1792. We would like to acknowledge and thank the Indigenous peoples who have been stewards and caretakers of the lands our workplaces and homes are situated on.
We recognize the connections these peoples have to these lands and the contributions they and Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples have made in shaping and strengthening this community.
We at Guelph Midwives are committed to providing culturally safe healthcare. We recognize our responsibilities as healthcare providers to act on the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action, to facilitate meaningful and essential change in our shared community.
