The Government of Yukon is working to regulate, fund and integrate midwifery into Yukon’s healthcare system. Midwives are health professionals who provide care to patients during normal pregnancy (prenatal care), labour and birth. Following birth, they provide care to both the birthing parent (post-partum care) and baby (post-natal care). Our goal as a government is to provide Yukoners additional options within a range of healthcare services that support healthy pregnancies, birthing experiences, and care after childbirth.
