Why would I choose a family physician to care for me in pregnancy and for delivery?

  • Family physicians that practice obstetrics provide a primary care lens to pregnancy care which allows us to provide holistic care to you as a whole person.
  • Family physicians take time to create a pregnancy and labour plan with you that is unique to you and your family.
  • Family physicians follow pregnant individuals carefully to make sure everything is going well but prefer to let things unfold naturally, intervening out only when it is necessary. 
  • Family physicians care for pregnant individuals with low-risk pregnancies but are also trained to manage common health problems. If complications occur, your family physician will work with obstetricians or other specialists to get you the care you need.
  • Family physicians who practice obstetrics work seamlessly and collaboratively with your family physician, at no cost to them, as a consultant for your pregnancy care.

We look forward to guiding you through your pregnancy journey!
