MATCH Midwifery

   

The MATCH (Midwifery and Toronto Community Health) Program offers a wide variety of services related to pregnancy, labour, and birth, as well as postpartum care for infants and adults, well-gynecological care and pregnancy options counselling. Our team is made up of four midwives and a social worker. We also work closely with family doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physiotherapists and harm reduction workers at the CHC. For LGBTQ+ families planning to welcome a baby born via surrogacy in a community outside Toronto, our team can provide infant postpartum care.  If you need a primary care provider for non-pregnancy related healthcare after or during your pregnancy, our team can connect you to a family doctor or nurse practitioner.

If you are planning to give birth, the midwives can attend your labour and birth at Michael Garron Hospital, the Toronto Birth Centre, or at home. The midwives provide 24 hour on-call services to MATCH clients during pregnancy and for the first 6 weeks postpartum. After your baby is born, we will visit you where you are staying to provide clinical care for you and your baby. Visits after the first week postpartum usually happen in our clinic.

Statement on anti-racism and anti-bias in our work

In 2018 when the MATCH program was funded, we adopted policy that addresses racial bias and heteronormativity in care. The policy is grounded in the work of the Ontario Human Rights Commission in these areas. We recommend reading the Commission’s thorough work on these topics for a better understanding of the histories of discrimination in Ontario.

The OHCR’s policy and guidelines on racism and racial discrimination can be found here and the OHCR’s Policy on discrimination and harassment because of sexual orientation can be found here.

Our anti-bias policy informs all the work, both clinical and non-clinical that our team undertakes.

To read excerpts of our policy, edited for clarity, please click here. For more information on our program’s complete policy and procedures related to implicit bias in care please feel free to email our team at match@srchc.com
