The Alberta government announced Friday that midwifery services would be available to expectant families at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital.
Officials said seven midwives hold delivery privileges at the hospital now.

Midwives work with expectant mothers with low-risk pregnancies; their care starts during pregnancy, and continues after birth.“More women in Alberta are choosing a midwife to support them both before and after a baby is born,” Health Minister Sarah Hoffman said.“The support midwives provide makes a tremendous difference to new moms and dads and I’m proud we’re investing in a service that helps so many newborns get a good start in life.”
The change is part of millions of dollars allocated for midwifery services over the next three years – a total of $49 million has been budgeted for this.

Gloria and Wellington

My husband and I took your class in March and I wanted to let you know that we had our twins in June.They cooked until 38 weeks and despite twin A being breech, I was able to deliver them both vaginally with no pain medication.
My water broke at 2:30 am and contractions started about an hour later. After 6 hours of labour at home, we went to the hospital. I was already 8 cm dilated and the OB on call was pretty determined to perform a c-section. My midwife advocated to let me try a breech delivery, and they agreed to give me an hour of pushing before they did the surgery.
They did all of the prep work for the c-section and then let me start pushing, 45 minutes later I had a little girl and 20 minutes after that a little boy followed. They were just under 5 lbs and just over 6 lbs when they were born.
Everyone was healthy and we only had to stay one night in the hospital. It was a relief to go home and be able to relax.
I really credit the HypnoBirthing practice for my ability to stay calm and focused. At no point in the labour did I feel fear or doubt in being able to deliver them. My husband was a great birth partner, knowing when to be quiet and when to give encouragement.
Thank you for a fun, informative and helpful birthing class. I recommend HypnoBirthing to anyone who is looking for a natural, empowered birth.

Jackson
My husband and I were in your HypnoBirthing class back around March. We were the ones having our second baby who were worried about not making it to the hospital on time. We did!
I was 5 days late and had an absolutely enormous baby. 10 lbs. 4 oz. There was meconium in the waters and we had a shoulder dystocia situation. Everything turned out fine! We stayed very calm during the labour/birth, and my contractions were much less painful than with my first. We both felt that HypnoBirthing helped us to remain calm and focused and it helped me to trust my body and believe in my own power during what could have been a risky birth.
After our son Jackson was born, the doctor showed us that there was also a true knot in the umbilical cord. Everyone is happy and healthy and I also found recovery much easier this time around.
Thank you again, I will be recommending you to other mamas - to - be!

Benjamin
I wanted to drop you a line to let you know we had a baby boy, Benjamin, 8 days ago. He's happy and healthy and back home, and was born 7lb 7oz.

I also wanted to thank you for your help and all the sessions to get us prepared for the labour. They were absolutely amazing and gave us tools we will use well into the future to help mom relax! The HypnoBirthing was exactly what we needed. Ava laboured for 12 hours and had an amazing experience. Between each wave for almost the entirety of labour she would just lean back and go to sleep.
Your help was invaluable and we really appreciate it!

Zac, Ava, and Ben
