Informed choice

pinard7Informed choice philosophy is rooted in providing relevant evidence-based information to enable clients to make decisions that best suit themselves and their families.

Midwives believe:

  • Clients have the right to make choices about their care
  • Clients are the main decision-makers in their care
  • Clients should have time to consider their options, and feel comfortable talking to their midwives to discuss them
  • Midwives respect the pregnant person as the primary decision-maker and will make recommendations based on their choices
