The Midwifery Regulatory Council protects the public interest by ensuring that registered midwives in Nova Scotia practice safely, competently and ethically.

If you have a concern about midwifery practice in Nova Scotia that you consider to be unprofessional, unsafe or unethical, you have the right to make a formal complaint to the Midwifery Regulatory Council and to have your complaint investigated. If you have a concern about care provided by a midwife, you may contact the Registrar at the Council to first discuss your concerns to decide if you wish to make a complaint. The Registrar may be able to help you to resolve the problem prior to submitting a formal complaint.

Note that the Midwifery Regulatory Council does not have the authority to assess injury or award compensation to a complainant. This is done through the court system.
