Welcome to Kensington Midwives
We provide primary care to low-risk client during pregnancy as well as care for parents and babies for six weeks after birth. At Kensington Midwives we are happy to care for all birthing parents and have midwives available who speak Spanish, have a particular focus on working with queer families, and families without OHIP.
Midwifery care in Ontario has been funded and regulated by the Province of Ontario, through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, since 1993. Midwifery care is free to all residents of Ontario and you do not need a referral.
Kensington Midwives has a broader commitment to social justice. We recognize that discrimination and systemic marginalization of people based on, but not exclusive to, ability, age, class, economic status, educational background, ethnicity, race, language, religion, sexual orientation, and reproductive and parenting decisions, perpetuates social injustices. We try to foster an equitable, anti-oppressive environment that is welcoming, safe, accessible and inclusive to all of our clients and midwives.
A Note about Language:
In an effort to be inclusive to all of our clients, we have avoided using terms such as "mother", "woman" and "women" on our website and in our printed materials. Please let your midwife know which pronouns and/or any other words you would like to use during your care.
The information on this website is not intended as a substitute for the advice and care of your midwife or other healthcare provider.
