One of the first questions that came up after first finding out I was pregnant was whether to go with a Midwife or Doctor. Its a complicated decision and I wish I could have had the care of both. In the end I opted for a midwife for my first baby and a doctor for my second, and I am thankful that I got to experience both. The idea of having your midwife and physician provide maternity care together as an all-in-one service just hasnt been an option – that is until now. At Apple Tree Maternity, Kootenay midwives and family physicians have teamed up to provide combined pregnancy, birth and newborn care. Families can receive maternity care with the support of a midwife and physician while connecting with other parents and maternity care services – all in one place! They are a wonderful team of women and we wish the best for them and all of the families they care for. For more information you can visit Apple Tree Maternity through their facebook page and website.
