Dawson Creek Midwifery is open for business for expecting mothers.
The service offers midwives to provide maternity care, with options of birth at home or at the Dawson Creek District Hospital. For Dawson Creek residents, they also offer postpartum visits at your home for up to two weeks and midwifery care for up to six weeks. Northern Health says the services are free for BC families, and the clinic is the first of its kind in northern BC.
Midwife services are available for residents of Chetwynd using the Dawson Creek District Hospital, but services are not available for home births in Chetwynd.
