Another approach to pre- and post-natal care

The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre (OBWC) is a not-for-profit community healthcare facility that specializes in natural childbirth and the care of pregnant women, new parents and young babies.

The centre’s spacious birth suites offer women with midwives and low-risk pregnancies an informal, family-centered place to birth their babies. The Wellness Centre houses a wide range of practitioners and service providers, offering everything from massage therapy, to complementary healthcare, to yoga classes, childbirth education, and much more: a wealth of information and services for women and families.

Everyone who works at the OBWC takes a culturally inclusive, non-institutional and holistic approach to care that draws clients from across the Ottawa area. We aim to make the Centre welcoming to all clients, including young women, new immigrants, single mothers, Aboriginal women, LGBT parents, and any others who are exploring out-of-hospital birth options.
