Lucina Midwives

Welcome to Lucina Midwives

Our clinic is located in the beautiful Lucina Centre, in close proximity to the Misericordia hospital in the west-end of Edmonton.

Midwives are experts in normal, low risk pregnancy, postpartum, and breastfeeding care. People choose midwives because we offer three important pillars to maternity care: choice of birth place (between home, birth centre, and hospital), informed consent (your right and responsibility to choose what’s best for your body and baby) and continuity of care (continuous philosophy of care and often care provider from beginning of pregnancy to 6 weeks of postpartum).

Many research studies have shown that midwifery care reduces birth intervention and cesarean delivery, and increases maternal and family satisfaction with birth experience.

Our midwives understand the profound nature of welcoming a baby into a family’s life. We are so happy you are here and we look forward to working together with you and your family on this journey.
