The College continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and strives to provide members and the public with up-to-date and evidence-based sources when necessary.
A reminder to midwives when communicating to their clients in person and/or on social media platforms about issues related to the pandemic to only rely on verifiable evidence-based information from reliable sources. If you are providing advice that does not align with best evidence or information being provided by public health officials and all levels of government, your comments or actions can lead to harm and make you vulnerable to be the subject of a complaint or a Registrar’s Investigation.
You may find the latest information from the College, answers to FAQs for midwives and clients, and links to trusted sources on our COVID-19 page.
