Waiting time for Midwives / Doulas?
So are we too late to find one? We are based in downtown Toronto.
What would the approx waitlist be like? And what might be the costs included? Any help would be appreciated!

Agree, I haven't met a bad midwife yet! We had a hospital birth with our first with two midwives, and a homebirth with our second - two midwives and a midwifery student. I can't say I ever felt unsupported or in need of a doula.nalababe wrote: ↑Sep 28th, 2017 3:21 pmWhile I am sure that there are "bad" midwives, we didn't find that any were bad at our location. Now, there will be some that are a better fit to your personality, but at this time, you probably won't have much choice.
Doula for our first
Midwife (actually had both that night and a student) and a doula for our second - home birth
Midwife for our third - but since it was not at her hospital, she had no privileges and therefore had to act much like a doula

You're so lucky to get one. I registered on the waitlist at week 10 and got a phone call when I was already in labour :-s

DO you have a preference in terms of where you want to give birth? Each midwifery assoc is affiliated with a hospital. I went with the one affiliated with Sunnybrook cos that's my preferred hospital and place of l&d.
