As midwives, we recognize that building a relationship with women in our care is an important part of supporting their health and well being.
At Pomegranate, we have solo midwives and midwife call-groups of up to four midwives.
In group-based midwifery, we ensure that you have appointments with each midwife on your team throughout your pregnancy so that you can build a relationship with your whole team. One of your midwives will be present with you during your birth – and possibly more, if your labor extends past a designated call-change time. Your postpartum home visits and clinic visits will alternative amongst the whole team.
In solo-care, you have one midwife throughout your pregnancy and postpartum. She works with another solo-midwife for supportive back-up (i.e. for the occasional weekend off-call); you will get a chance to meet her for one prenatal visit as well.
No matter the size of your team, one of your midwives is on-call for you 24/7 should you have any urgent concerns that cannot wait until your next clinic visit, and of course for when you are in labour.
