We are pleased to share our July 2018 edition of our On Call Newsletter. This edition covers Council decisions around the Fee & Remuneration By-law and General By-law, shares information about open public consultations, changes to the College’s Sexual Abuse Prevention Policy, impacts of Bill 87, and responds to questions about the revised Second Birth Attendant Standard.
The midwife-client relationship is based on trust, with clients expecting a midwife who is highly skilled and knowledgeable. The majority of midwives in Ontario meet all of the College’s high standards, and it is our job as regulators to ensure families can trust that their midwife will provide safe and excellent care at all times. Sexual abuse by a midwife violates that trust and is never acceptable. The College has zero tolerance for sexual abuse and has the responsibility to investigate all complaints.
On June 1, 2018, the Professional Standards came into effect, and the requirement for two midwives at a birth was replaced by the requirement of either two midwives or one midwife and a second birth attendant. For this reason, we revised the College’s Second Birth Attendant Standard to better define the expectations for midwives who work with second birth attendants.
