As St. Jacobs Midwives get more information in regards to the necessary response to COVID-19 there may be frequent adjustments to keep our clients, midwives, and community safe.

St. Jacobs Midwives have spaced out your appointments in accordance with the guidelines put forth by the World Health Organization (WHO). Some of your appointments will be virtual and others will be in person. 

If you would like to cancel or rebook your visit, please e-mail or call our office at 519-664-2542. We ask you to refrain from calling the office about your future visits if you have not heard from your midwife as we are trying to address your care needs as new information comes from Grand River Hospital, Region of Waterloo and other sources.
