Midwife Role in the World: Manitoba Memo

In all countries and cultures, women who have experience in childbirth have
traditionally attended births. One generation of women trained the next generation of
women. Even today, it is estimated that eighty percent of babies around the world are
born into the caring and skilled hands of a midwife.
In the Canadian context, midwifery historically played an important role in
Aboriginal communities. And when the European settlers arrived, it was often
Aboriginal midwives who delivered their offspring. Later, as more waves of immigrants
came to Canada, immigrant women brought their culture’s midwifery knowledge and
practices with them.
By 1865, as doctors began delivering babies, midwifery was criminalized in
Canada. Midwives continued to practice however. In fact, many worked with and
trained the very doctors who were taking over their roles.
The biggest decline in midwifery in Canada came in the early 20th century.
Anesthetics were becoming more popular with women in childbirth and only doctors
could provide them. Hospital births were becoming more common than home births,
especially in urban areas. While many industrialized nations continued to support
midwife attended births, North America moved in a completely different direction.
Doctors, acting in part in their own self-interest, told the public that midwife attended
births were unsafe. They also resisted proposals for more formal training of midwives,
who were mostly female.
In the 1980’s women in Canada began looking for less medically intrusive birth
experiences. They wanted the option of a birth process which was viewed more as a
normal, natural part of life and less of a medical procedure. Slowly, but surely, pressure
from expectant mothers for birth alternatives has led to a resurgence of midwives
across the country. Formal midwife training programs have been developed. The
demand for midwife services continues to increase.
Manitoba has the highest percentage of births attended by midwives of all the
provinces. Publicly funded and regulated midwifery was introduced here just over a
decade ago. Since that time, trained midwives have provided services for 1,000’s of
families across the province. Midwives care for women throughout their pregnancy,
their labor and birth. They also care for mother and baby for six weeks after the birth.
Licensed midwives can order and interpret lab tests, write prescriptions related to
maternal and newborn care and consult with or refer to family doctors and specialists.
Midwives in Manitoba care for women and children in the community, in their
homes and in clinics and hospitals. Soon women in Winnipeg with low-risk, normal
pregnancies will be able to give birth at a birth center staffed by midwives. The Minister
of Health hopes that eventually there will be birth centers in other regions of the
