We provide primary care to low-risk clients during their pregnancy as well as care for parents and babies for six weeks after the birth.
Since 1993 midwifery care has been funded and regulated by the Province of Ontario, through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, therefore it is free to all residents of Ontario. You do not need a referral.
You can choose to give birth at home, at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, or the Toronto Birth Centre.
Kensington Midwives have 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, gender, language, race, religion, sexual orientation, and reproductive and parenting decisions, perpetuates social inequities. We try to foster an equitable, anti-oppressive environment that is welcoming, safe, accessible and inclusive to all of our clients and midwives.
