A Birth Centre is a regulated, community-based health care facility that offers pregnant people a safe, comfortable, family-centred place to give birth. If you choose to have a registered midwife, you can choose to have your baby at a hospital, at home or at the Toronto Birth Centre.
The Toronto Birth Centre aims to create an environment that supports diverse communities in Toronto. This safe and welcoming space is open to you and your registered midwife to create the kind of birth experience you’d like to have. Families using the Toronto Birth Centre are encouraged to incorporate their own culture, background, traditions and preferences in their experience. Supporting Aboriginal families through pregnancy and birth is a particular focus of the Toronto Birth Centre.
The Toronto Birth Centre is committed to being a resource for information and support for women, families and communities in the city. Prenatal classes, access to alternative care providers, educational opportunities, referrals and community partnerships provide extra support for pregnancy, labour, birth, breastfeeding and parenting.
