Congrats on your pregnancy. I am also in Ontario (Waterloo - not Toronto) I had midwives with my last child and I can't say enough good things about them. We had a home birth, a birth center wasn't an option. The home birth was totally lovely and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Have a happy, healthy 9 months. Looking forward to following you.

Thanks. I can't wait for the midwife clinic to call me and get the ball rolling!! They said it usually takes two weeks, and I called right away so I'm hoping they aren't fully booked already as I know they book fast around here.
Funny thing is, an acquaintance I have on FB literally JUST graduated from university to be a Midwife. Turns out, she lives like 5 min north of me. She's in the pagan community with my husband so I know her, but don't really "know" her, kwim? We've talked only once or twice but been to many events together. She's super nice and I wouldn't be surprised if she works/trains with the midwife clinic I selected because it's the only one that services Brampton where I live! I think it would be awesome if she is somehow involved.
Due to my health, age and complications I could not use a midwife which sucks as I have a couple of friends who are midwives, they are a great resource for me.
