Ontario says it is improving access to culturally appropriate child and maternity care for more Indigenous people across the province.

Aboriginal Midwives provide a full range of culturally safe midwifery primary care, support services, language and community education.

The government is supporting the establishment of an Aboriginal Midwifery program at K’Tigaaning Midwives, Powassan.

A news release states that to help people connect more easily with these services, many of the Aboriginal Midwifery programs will work in existing health care teams with family doctors, nurse practitioners, social workers and traditional healers, and will develop strong links with local primary care health services in their area.
