FAQs on Midwifery Care During the Omicron Variant

January 19, 2022

The Omicron variant is placing a significant strain on our health care system. Despite these challenges, registered midwives in Ontario are continuing to provide quality care to clients and their newborns.   

In light of the current circumstances, the College has updated our Frequently Asked Questions pages to provide midwives with appropriate guidance, and to help midwifery clients understand any changes to how their care is provided.  

We encourage you to revisit these FAQs on an ongoing basis. We also invite you to contact College staff should you have any questions about providing or receiving midwifery care during the pandemic.  

Please contact our Practice Advisory team at or 416.640.2252 ext. 230.
