Looking for a midwife

The Midwifery Coalition of Nova Scotia is a consumer advocacy group and does not provide midwifery services. We'd love to have a live link to hook you up to the midwifery services in Nova Scotia but the sites are so new that they don't have websites yet.

Currently there are only two sites where midwives are practicing.

We recently asked the three midwifery centres several questions which we thought reflected what women would want to know. Questions and answers...
