Thinking About Midwifery Care?
Midwifery care is covered by BC Medical Services Plan (MSP). We are a primary maternity care provider in Richmond. We will oversee your health care needs during pregnancy, birth and for 6 weeks after your birth.
We also provide after-birth only care to women and their babies who have received their care from a family doctor or obstetrician.
A doctor's referral is not required for becoming our client.
Blossom Birth Program offers individualized, evidence-based care during pregnancy, labour, birth and the first six weeks after your baby is born.
Blossom embraces a team approach to care. By alternating between two midwives. you will become acquainted with both Sara and Lori. We have been practicing midwifery together for over 10 years, and have become close enough to complete each other's sentences!
We believe that women should have choice in their maternity care. We are passionate about engaging and empowering women in their maternal health.
We believe that having a baby is a life changing event and we are here to help. We love what we do and all of the families whose lives we've been a part of and we look forward to those to come!
During your labour and birth, we provide you with expert care and ongoing support. Once baby comes, we follow and support you and the new baby for 6 weeks. This includes home visits in the first 1-2 weeks.
Our one on one appointments are 30 minutes long. We encourage you to come with questions, ideas, and readiness to be engaged.
After Birth Care - Post Partum
Blossom also provides the option to request for only after-birth care.
This includes home visits and ongoing care of you and your baby for 2 to 6 weeks after birth. We also provide breastfeeding support
This service is ideal for women who need additional support, as well as those who do not have a family physician.
"Thank-you so very much for your emotional support and professional care throughout the journey of our pregnancy, the joyous moment of Cynthia's birth, and the adventure that is our new life as a family. As teachers, we're in a profession where communication is our main tool, yet, when the six weeks postpartum appointment was over, we were suddenly at a loss of words to meaningfully express our gratitude. It was a bittersweet goodbye that felt like an incredible memory.
It's hard to imagine that at our very first appointment, we needed an explanation of what midwives are, since now, we can't stop sharing our positive experience whenever we speak about our pregnancy and birth. We've always found that you ladies went above and beyond - there were so many seemingly inconsequential moments for you that truly meant a great deal to us, I felt very supported.
In teaching, we often say that the career is not a job, but a calling. I would say that you ladies are meant to help deliver joy to people's lives with your calling as midwives, as you care with great professionalism and genuine love for the families whose lives you have touched. Thank-you!"
