Access Midwives

Access Midwives A group of registered midwives providing prenatal, birth, and postpartum care in Hamilton, Ontario. A Division of Youngberg Professional Corporation
(55)

Access Midwives is a midwifery practice serving the Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Dundas, Burlington and West Grimsby areas. We know that pregnancy and childbirth are a profound time in a woman’s life, imbued with a variety of personal and cultural meanings, and are best approached in a non-authoritarian manner, providing choice of birthplace, continuity of care, informed choice and recognizing the woman as the primary decision maker. Midwives are experts in the provision of primary care for women anticipating normal, low risk pregnancy and birth. Valuing and respecting diversity is integral to the provision of midwifery care. We are a group of midwives with many diverse backgrounds. We come from the arts, the sciences, and from the community and we work together to provide you with the highest standard of midwifery care. Here at Access Midwives we provide your family with personalized prenatal, labour, birth and postpartum care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We offer home and hospital birth and we have admitting privileges at McMaster Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare. All midwives in our practice are registered with the College of Midwives of Ontario and are also members of the Association of Ontario Midwives. In Ontario, midwives work as primary care providers and are fully funded and there is no additional charge to you. If you would be interested in having a midwife please contact us at (905) 546-5002 once you know you are pregnant. We would be happy to have you join our clinic and provide you with empowering and individualized care.

It's National Breastfeeding Week 2020!
It runs from October 1 - October 7th.
↓↓↓↓

This week focuses on the impact of infant feeding on the environment/climate change and the imperative to protect, promote and support breastfeeding for the health of the planet and its people. Breastfeeding is a prime example of the deep connections between human health and nature’s eco systems.

Breastmilk is a natural, renewable source food that is environmentally safe and green because its produced and delivered to the consumer without pollution, packaging, or waste.

Consider breastfeeding!

Thinking of using a midwife service?
One of the many benefits of using a midwife service is that they support you for six weeks after childbirth during your postpartum period.

This is a very important time for both you and your newborn baby as you adjust to each other and your expanded family.
After your birth, whether in the hospital or at home, we will monitor the condition of both you and your baby for the first few hours.

We will help you breastfeed, have a bath or shower, and provide information and guidance for your care during the early days after birth.

Having a midwife has plenty of benefits. Consider using Access Midwives and apply for a midwife today.

We want to thank Delange Family for sharing their baby story with Access Midwives.
This is what they said,

"I absolutely love and appreciate the support and guidance I received from my Team, Erin, Tamara and Simone. Although things were a little different this pregnancy, especially because of COVID restrictions I never felt that my care was different or less important than it would be at any other time! All 3 of my wonderful Midwives went above and beyond to take care of us, both physically and mentally."

"Our second little girl, Amelia Grace was delivered by Connie on December 28, 2019. This was my second time delivering with Access Midwives and very much like the first experience with my November 2017 baby, I can’t say thank you enough to all of my midwives and the wonderful staff at the clinic for their care. Having experienced pregnancy and delivery before, I definitely felt more prepared this time around but I knew that if ever I had a question, thought or concern I could speak to my midwives any day or time, no questions asked.

The support my family received from these exceptional women is something I will be eternally grateful for."

"Amanda & Sara helped deliver my first babygirl - Shiloh, after 3 boys on February 3rd, 2020 in the comfort of my living room.

This is my second home birth with access midwives.
They were so sweet and helpful with everything. Rachel was one of my main midwives who did home visits post birth and she sat with me for long periods of time just connecting and talking and exchanging stories of life, I truly appreciated it.

If I ever have a 5th (oh my) I would use access midwives!
Thanks ladies 💓"

We want to thank the Pieterse family for sharing their baby story with Access Midwives. This is what they said,

"Being a first time mom who suffers from anxiety I was worried about most common normal things, from cramps to the vomiting you name it so when I finally met with Cait all of those anxieties were put at ease. I was actually able to hear the babies heartbeat at that appt, and from then on it was a piece of cake. My prenatal care was seriously so amazing- Emma and Kristen who were also my midwives were so so kind and helped answer any questions I had. Fast forward to the birth, COVID was fresh and the midwives took every precaution to help ensure our safety. I was so impressed with how they navigated their way throughout this world wide pandemic."

Can’t believe this little one (my second and last) is now 6 months! I’m still thankful everyday for Kristen, Kristi and Connie for helping through my pregnancy, birth and first 6 weeks postpartum
I can’t believe my kiddos are 5 years old and almost 4 months. I’m thankful everyday for the wonderful care I received at Access Midwives for both my pregnancies
Ever so grateful for my midwifery team 💕🧡
Grayson turned 1 this past week and I've found myself reminiscing alot about the day that changed our lives and the amazing care I received!!! So grateful to Lynlee Doll Spencer and the team for delivering Baby G!
Reminds me of my labour with Sarah DH, Rebecca Hayman and Arlene!
Thank you Team Purple for taking such good care of baby (and mama!)
I will never forget my first walk to the bathroom with Lynlee. ♡
Today is a tough day for me since this is the last day that I'm under the care of my incredible midwives Erin, Tamara, Simone and Sarah😥. I have absolutely no idea what I would have done without them, I can't even put into words how helpful the prenatal and 6 weeks of postnatal care has been...this baby dummy would have been lost without their guidance! Thank you ladies for everything.💕
Yesterday was my last appointment with Sam and Elise. Elise was my midwife for three of my babies! Sam and Ashley delivered my sweet 9lb Brayden at St. Joe's Hospital. Fabulous Ladies! Thankful for these women who chose midwifery as their career :) xo
Hi everyone, My name is Alexandra Holt and I am a graduate student at the University of Guelph. I am conducting a research project with pregnant women in Ontario that asks about their experiences with seeking nutrition information. The first part of my research project was an online questionnaire, which asked about where and when pregnant women look for nutrition information. The survey is still available at https://tinyurl.com/prenatalnutritionstudy. To complete the survey you must be: 1. 18 years of age or older 2. A resident of Ontario 3. Proficient at reading English 4. Currently pregnant The second part of my research project is telephone interviews, which ask specifically about women’s experiences with using the internet to find pregnancy-related nutrition information. To take part in an interview you must be: 1. 18 years of age or older 2. A resident of Ontario 3. Fluent in English 4. Currently pregnant for the first time, or less than 3 months post-partum (after your first pregnancy) I am currently still looking for women to interview. If you are interested in taking part in an interview or learning more about this opportunity, please send me an email at [email protected]. This project has been reviewed by the University of Guelph Research Ethics Board for compliance with federal guidelines for research involving human participants (REB#16-12-749). Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your time!
