Here for You and Your Baby
At Talbot Creek Midwives, we strive to provide respectful, supportive and client-centered care during the healthy process of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum experience. We promote optimal birth outcomes and guide clients to have empowering birth experiences. We deliver evidence-based care in a safe atmosphere that is welcoming to clients from all walks of life.
We work as an innovative and specially curated team of midwives who provide best practices for clients and their families. We teach future midwives to support birth and client-centered care. Our practice reflects our values of excellence, compassion, respect, honesty and kindness.
What We Do
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, and the change of public health recommendations, as of December 26th, 2021, we are unfortunately needing to make the following changes:
All non-essential clinic appointments will be either by phone or through a virtual meeting. All essential clinic appointments will be conducted by phone first, followed by a 10-15 minute in-person meeting to conduct the clinical examinations only (blood pressure, fetal heart rate, blood work etc.). This is in line with the World Health Organization's recommendations for providing safe care to pregnant people in the pandemic.
Our clinic waiting room will need to be locked and unoccupied. Support persons or partners are no longer able to attend in-person appointments. Due to the large volume of clients that attend our office every day, and the increase in covid positive calls we have been receiving from clients, we ask that you understand that we must keep our clients safe as well as ourselves from getting sick. So we can continue to attend your labour and births. We know how much this impacts the quality of your care, but we will absolutely bring support people back into the clinic when it is safe to do so.
Please wait in your car for your appointment and your midwife will call you when the room is clean and ready.
We are hopeful that you will understand the delay if our clinic is running late, due to the increased stress women are under during this time as well as the increased demands of your midwives having to navigate needing to quarantine, self-isolate due to exposures from clients, or continue working after being ill ourselves.
Please understand that in rare circumstances, your clinic appointments may be canceled or rescheduled on short notice. This will only occur if your scheduled midwife has to quarantine, is unwell, or has been exposed to Covid-19 and is awaiting a test result. We do not cancel clinics for any other reason. If we can preserve clinic appointments, we will, with a separate midwife who may be available to conduct your appointment.
Please continue to read your email appointment reminders from us, as they will contain any updates to our practice and clinic policies.
During postpartum home visits, we ask that you wear a mask and avoid having extra (non-immediate family members) in the house while we are there, or are located in a separate room, to minimize exposure to us. We often have to attend multiple homes in one day and do not want to spread infection. We appreciate your understanding and want you to know that we are working hard to provide you with all of the necessary information you need, to make the best decisions for you and your family.
