Can my family and friends be involved in my care?

Yes - we encourage you to bring partners, children, or other friends and family members to your clinic appointments as often as you like. We recognize that this is your pregnancy and you should be able to choose who you share that experience with. If you are planning a home birth you can involve as many people as can fit it your house! If you are planning a hospital birth, typically only two support people (in addition to your midwives) are allowed in the birth room. Be sure to check with your midwives about current hospital policies around number of support people you can have with you as they have been known to change depending on current security or infection control concerns.
