Our Philosophy

Registered Midwives in Alberta are provincially funded primary health providers who care for low-risk pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. We strive to practice informed choice by providing all the evidence-based information about tests and procedures of the childbearing year, and believe that with our guidance, it is you who has the right and responsibility to make all final decisions regarding your care. If you are under the care of a midwife you do not need to access routine prenatal care with a family doctor or obstetrician.

Once you are accepted as a client of Lucina Midwives, your care will be provided in our clinic at the beautiful Lucina Birth and Wellness Centre. This centre offers many other complimenting services including Chiropractic Care & Massage Therapy by Leverage Health Clinic, Physiotherapy Care by NurtureHer , and Psychological Services by Opal Psychology . We offer choice of birthplace to all our clients, which includes Lucina Birth Centre, home, or hospital. Any Registered Midwife can bring their patients to the Lucina Birth Centre for birthing.
