Throughout pregnancy, you have a lot on your plate. You have to juggle a thousand symptoms while having literally no energy, figure out your nursery, navigate the registry, dodge unsolicited advice in the middle of a grocery store, and more. With so many things, finding a healthcare provider who will work with you to answer all your questions and ease all concerns is helpful. That is why I believe everybody should have a midwife. Having a midwife will give you 24/7 access to a healthcare provider who will sit with you and make sure you feel heard. While Kelowna has some wonderful midwives, I think you’ll love the Malachite Midwives.
Thirteen years ago, Malachite Midwives started as a center focused on holistic healthcare for pregnant people. The center strives to build trust with its patients and ensure health for all. That is part of the reason why they’re so passionate about climate change activism. The center does all it can to be sustainable such as offering linen drapes rather than paper and filling its front yard with a garden. When the midwives are not by your side, there’s a good chance they will be protesting for planet-saving legislation. The center’s awareness of who they are in the community and on this earth is one of the many things that makes them so darn unique.
The team has six midwives on staff who are there to help you through every stage of pregnancy. Midwives can provide more attentive care than standard OBs. They’ll be with you for up to ninety minutes, checking your baby’s progress and talking you through any questions. One of the most significant benefits of using a Malachite Midwife is their commitment to “informed choice.” Rather than taking the reins on every aspect of your pregnancy, they’ll provide you with all the necessary information and allow you to make your own healthcare decisions. You are empowered to give birth the way you see fit! The Malachite Midwives operate out of a cozy little center where you’ll receive all your prenatal care. Once it’s show time, you can choose to have your baby in the hospital, in a birth center, or from home. You get to decide it all!
One of my favorite parts about midwives is their attention to postpartum care. Often, OBs cannot give you the individualized care you need meaning. Malachite Midwives understand the toll pregnancy and labor have on the body, which is why you will continue to receive their same fantastic care up to eight weeks after delivery.
With Malachite Midwives, you will find a midwife you can trust! With years of experience and scores of happy families, it’s the perfect place to welcome your brand-new addition.
