Toronto Birth Centre

Birth Centre Opening in Regent Park


Remember the birth centre promise? When Ontario regulated midwifery way back in 1991 one of the key philosophies of midwifery care, choice of birthplace, included the promise of birth centres, non-medicalized facilities where clients could chose to give birth.
