Bachelor of Health Science, Faculty of Community Services
Midwifery Education Program

This innovative program has been offering midwifery education since 1993 in partnership with McMaster and Laurentian universities.

The baccalaureate degree program prepares graduates to be eligible to apply for registration as midwives in Ontario, and meets recognized national and international standards. Graduates work as registered healthcare professionals who provide primary care to women with low-risk pregnancies, conduct births in home and hospital settings, and provide care after birth for women and their babies up to six weeks of age.

Our program prepares graduates to engage in lifelong learning. Working as a midwife requires a keen intelligence combined with flexibility and compassion. Midwives need a thorough understanding of normal and complex conditions affecting pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum care of women and the newborn.
