WHO WE ARE
Amma, meaning ‘mother’ in many languages, is comprised of midwives who are passionate about working with women and families from all cultural groups. All of our midwives are registered with the College of Midwives of Ontario, and are members of the Association of Ontario Midwives.
We provide a full suite of services to suit your needs. We offer in-house referrals for prenatal and baby massage, orthotics, dietician services, the Doctors Breastfeeding Clinic, reflexology, pelvic floor physiotherapy and Naturopathy.
Prenatal care offers you the opportunity to learn about the changes in your body as your pregnancy progresses. During your prenatal care we see you on the same schedule of visits as a family doctor or obstetrician.
Labour and Birth
Midwives can support you in giving birth either at home or in the hospital. For hospital births, we deliver our clients at Etobicoke General Hospital. We also provide care to women wishing to experience a water birth.
After the birth, we will monitor the condition of both you and your baby for the first few hours. We will help you to breastfeed, have a bath or shower and provide information and guidance for your care during the early days after the birth.
Our primary goal is to ensure that all women have equal access to midwifery services and are aware of their maternity care choices. We will continuously strive to reach out to women and families in order to provide a holistic care that is respectful of the cultures, religions and personal values of our diverse populations. We believe that by enabling women to become active decision makers, we are empowering them to take control of their health.
