About Us

OUR PRACTICE IS

Seventh Generation Midwives Toronto (SGMT) is a group of midwives who offer maternity care to women from the City of Toronto, particularly those from the downtown area, and from the Aboriginal community. We have privileges at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. We provide midwifery care throughout pregnancy, labour, birth, and the first 6 weeks postpartum.

VISION STATEMENT

Seventh Generation Midwives Toronto believes in the sacredness of all life, and respects the beauty and power of nature and creation. We believe that birth is a profound and awesome event in a woman’s life.

Seventh Generation Midwives Toronto is a group of primary caregivers who provide high quality maternity care to women and their families. We take into account the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical experiences of the woman during her childbearing year.

We seek to improve the health and well being of families from diverse cultures in the Toronto area. We envision maternity care for the Aboriginal community that enables women to reclaim control of birth for themselves, including the choice to incorporate traditional teachings and ceremonies. Our work as midwives belongs to and serves the woman, her family, and her community.

We aspire to support and mentor more members of the Aboriginal community to enter into health professions, including Midwifery.
