Scope of Practice

Midwives specialize in low risk, normal, and natural birth. This means that sometimes a midwife may recommend consulting with a specialist health care professional for their opinion on higher-risk matters

More information on when a midwife will recommend consultation or a complete transfer of your clinical care to a physician, and your choices in this regard, is available in the CMO standard, “Consultation and Transfer of Care” found on the CMO’s website.
