Authorized Six Nations Aboriginal Midwives
Aboriginal Midwifery Training Calendar
For centuries, the traditional Onkwehon:we Midwife cared for her community throughout the lifecycle. She specialized in providing safe and competent care to women during the reproductive cycle. She accepted the responsibility and the gifts that the Creator gave her and prayed for guidance in understanding and practicing her gifts.

In 1991, midwifery was regulated as a profession in Ontario. Following legislation, the title “midwife” became a protected name. Only individuals registered with the College of Midwives are eligible to legally practice midwifery in Ontario. The only exception is Aboriginal Midwives, who are exempt as stated in the Midwifery Act.
