WHO WE ARE
We are midwives & mothers who have the desire to empower families through the sharing of knowledge & by supporting informed choice. We believe maternity care should be grounded in acknowledgment & respect for the unique nature of each family's journey.
As Registered Midwives, we see first hand the positive impact that a strong educational foundation has on the pregnancy, birth & parenting experience. BirthWorx combines midwifery expertise with a love of teaching to provide this foundation to all families.
We are excited to offer a range of services including birth preparation workshops, in-home breastfeeding support and online prenatal courses. Developed by Registered Midwives in Calgary, our interactive workshops and online courses offer a fresh take on the traditional prenatal class format and are thoughtfully designed to meet the diverse needs of all families near and far.
Making the Right Choice for Your Family
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Prenatal classes are typically taught by nurses, doulas or childbirth educators. We are the only primary maternity care providers offering comprehensive workshops in Calgary!
As midwives who currently deliver babies & mothers with young children ourselves, we offer a unique perspective & skillset for guiding your family on this journey.
As our clients, you will be able to directly benefit from our extensive experience & in-depth knowledge of the Calgary health care system.
We provide access to our safe & respectful community through our online support groups & network of like-minded local practitioners. Our intention is to align health education with the continuous evolution of our connected world.
By combining tangible hands-on guidance with our online resources we aim to modernize the education experience to become more relevant for today's generation of parents.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Midwives have the lowest intervention rates for low risk births. We have the highest success rates for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean & the highest breastfeeding rates in Canada. This is due to our respect for the physiological process of birth & our personalized approach to complications when they arise.
Our workshops are the ideal complement to your prenatal health care if you are currently being cared for by midwives.
If you value the midwifery philosophy & are currently being cared for by doctors our workshops are a fantastic way to benefit from our midwifery expertise and strategies.
