Midwife Application

Midwifery Application:

  • The Alberta Association of Midwives request for care form must be completed to be considered by any midwifery clinic. *IMPORTANT TIP: the form will ask you for your preferred clinics. Your applications is only visible to the clinics you select. In order to increase your chances of obtaining midwifery care, we recommend selecting all clinics that you’re willing to drive to for appointments. You will be asked to select a 1st and 2nd choice, but be sure to also select all the clinics that you would accept care from.
  • We have our own internal application form and intake process. If you’ve already applied online though the Alberta Midwifery Request for Care, you must still fill out our internal form linked above.
  • Filling out the application form does not mean you’ve been accepted into midwifery care.
  • When accepting patients into our care, we prioritize out-of-hospital birthing people (Lucina Birth Centre and home-birth).
  • In order to qualify for midwifery care, you must be experiencing a low-risk, healthy pregnancy.
  • If accepted into care, you may need to travel to both of our clinic locations and, in some circumstances, have virtual appointments. We have two clinic locations for appointments; our West clinic location is located at 14615 104 Ave NW, Edmonton (Carly’s clinic). Our East clinic location is located at 6426 112 Ave NW, Edmonton (Laura & Janette’s clinic).

  • All of the information you provide on this form is kept confidential.

How to Apply for Care with Lucina Midwives:

  1. Complete the Alberta Midwifery Request for Care form. *Note: selecting specific midwifery practices on this application form means you’re ONLY visible to those practices. You can select multiple practices.
  2. Complete our internal application form . Filling out this form does not mean you’ve been accepted into care. Our midwives need to review the application and check their availability.
  3. Wait for a reply. If accepted into care, we will email you to confirm your intake process and set-up an initial intake appointment. We require a prompt reply. Be sure to check your junk mail for our reply. If accepted into care, you’ll be able to connect with your midwife directly via email for further communications regarding appointment rebooking/cancelling and your health care.
  4. Due to high volume of applications, we are unable to reply to everyone regarding the status of their application. If you have not received an email from us, it means we are unable to accommodate your request for care and have put you on our internal waitlist.
  5. We encourage you to apply at other clinics as well.

If you do not have an Alberta Health Care number:

We accept privately-paid midwifery patients in circumstances where AHS funded spots are full or if you are not Canadian AND our midwives have capacity. Simply type “private-pay” in the section where the forms ask for your health care number and add into comments. The cost for a full course of care (1st trimester through to postpartum) is approximately $4600 – depending on tests/scans required.
