Midwifery Services

Registered midwives work as specialists in normal birth and have privileges to do deliveries in the hospital or, if appropriate, in the comfort of the client's own home.

Registered midwives provide the following services:

  • Assess and monitor women and their babies during pregnancy, labour, birth and the postpartum period;
  • Order tests and assessments (including ultrasounds during pregnancy and diagnostic tests for newborns); and
  • Prescribe and administer many common drugs that are used during pregnancy, birth and throughout the postpartum period.

Midwives are licensed and regulated by the Saskatchewan College of Midwives.

How to find a midwife

Midwives are employed by the Saskatchewan Health Authority or through private practice. Currently, there are no registered midwives in private practice in Saskatchewan.
