ALBERTA MIDWIFERY STATS
Because Birth Issues is “made in Alberta” we are happy to say that there has been an improvements in the number of Registered Midwives working in this province. We are no longer losing the race as Alberta now places 5 out of 13 provinces / territories in the percentage of midwife-supported births. However, when we consider that Alberta is the economic engine of Canada, this number is still too low.
We, the consumers, need to keep the pressure on our provincial and territorial governments to attract more midwives to our Canadian cities, towns, and villages.
