MIDWIFERY AND INFANT CARE

The arrival of a new baby makes all the difference to a family’s life, bringing both joy and new challenges. Even if it’s not your first baby, a newborn means change to your family’s lifestyle. Midwives and nurses with advanced certifications will primarily handle the Midwifery and Infant Care Program under the delegation of Emirati Canadian Home Health Care Services’ registered obstetrician.

Pre-natal care and support will be provided to women who are classified as low risk’ during pregnancy to promote better birth outcomes. Post-natal care will be provided to maximize both mother and infant’s health and quality of life following delivery and hospital stay. Referrals will be made as needed if mother or child have additional needs such as OT, PT, SLP, RT or dietetics.
