Ford: restore provincial funding to Ontario College of Midwives

Restore funding for the training of Midwives

Why is this important?

Midwives deliver 15 per cent of the babies born in Ontario, care for 12 to 14 per cent of pregnant women and are turning away clients because they can’t meet the demand, according to the Association of Ontario Midwives (AOM), which plays an advocacy and support role for midwives. We need MORE funding. Not less

The decision to remove all funding shows a contempt for the profession and for women's needs
