*Revised Standard* Second Birth Attendant Standard

September 21, 2022

The College’s revised Second Birth Attendant Standard came into effect on September 1, 2022 and sets out the requirements for midwives working with a second birth attendant. 

A Second Birth Attendant refers to an individual, other than a midwife registered with the College of Midwives of Ontario, who works with a midwife to provide care during labour, birth and the immediate postpartum, not in a subsequent postpartum visit. A second birth attendant may be a care provider who is regulated as a member of a health regulatory College in Ontario or who is an unregulated care provider.
