Apple Tree is a team which joins family physicians and midwives to provide pregnancy, birth and newborn care. Coming to Apple Tree means receiving care from both family physicians and midwives throughout your pregnancy, along with other allied health professionals. We draw on each other’s experience, knowledge and strengths and share common values and a consistent approach when providing care. Such collaborative maternity care models have been evaluated in other settings, and have found high quality care and great satisfaction among women and care providers alike.
We work on a call system, rotating who is available for births. This means that you will have the advantage of one-on-one care in labour by a provider who is rested with energy to give. You will have an opportunity to meet all of the Apple Tree team prior to your birth.
