Thinking About Midwifery Care?
Midwifery care is covered by your BC Medical Service Plan (MSP). We are primary maternity care providers in Richmond who cover all of your health care needs in pregnancy, birth and after your birth for 6 weeks (postpartum). We also provide care to women and their babies after birth who have received their care from a family doctor or obstetrician. You do not need a referral. Come check out our website and if you're interested give us a call at 778-297-1678 press 2, drop us an email at , or complete our registration! We look forward to meeting you!
Located at the south end of No. 2 Road in the new and vibrant area of London Landing on the Steveston Harbour, Blossom Birth Program offers individualized, evidence-based care during pregnancy, labour, birth and the first six weeks after your baby is born including breastfeeding support. Our care is fully covered by the Medical Services Plan of BC.
At Blossom we provide a team approach to care. Sara and Lori have many years of experience and we have been practicing midwifery together for over 10 years. After so many years together, we can even finish each other's sentences!
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!
We believe that women should have choice in their maternity care. We are passionate about women being engaged and empowered in their health and maternity care. Our practice is all about a healthy mother and a healthy baby and we have made relationships with specialist colleagues like our Richmond Obstetricians and Paediatricians to ensure that your care is always evidenced based and comprehensive.
Having a baby is a profound event in your life and our goal is to support you and provide you with safe, individualized care. Our one on one appointments are 30 minutes long and we encourage you to come with questions, ideas, and be engaged in your care
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.
After Birth Care - Post Partum
Blossom also provides care after birth to women who want or need more support, or those who do not have a family physician. This includes a home visit from us as well as ongoing management and care of you and your baby for 2 to 6 weeks after birth.

"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!"
