Policies

Policies are approved by the Council to guide the professional knowledge, skills and judgment needed to practice midwifery safely in Nova Scotia.

Midwives must display their licences at their place of employment

Only a registered midwife can use the term “midwife”

As primary care providers, midwives are fully responsible for clinical assessment, planning of care and decision-making together with their clients during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
