Indigenous Midwifery​

At Countryside, we understand that we are working and living on lands which are not ours. We are working hard to learn more about the communities of traditional peoples who rightfully claim this land, and ways we can actively work towards reconciliation for years of trauma, prejudice, and active oppression. 

We know that midwifery has been a traditional practice in indigenous communities around the globe, and colonial practices have removed access to safe community, and culturally based care from many areas in Canada. We have a lot of work to do in order to support the Indigenous midwives in Ontario and across the country. The immense privilege to catch babies and care for families in this community is not one we take lightly.


Our catchment area is large, and Countryside midwives work across lands of many indigenous communities including the Anishinabewaki, Mississauga, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Odawa, and Petun.
