This week, the Ontario government announced that it was going to be helping to reestablish traditional First Nations midwifery.
They will be doing this by establishing 6 new Aboriginal Midwifery programs. Their goal is to help provide First Nations families with options in their births.
What a wonderful project, and I can not wait to see how it works out! Congratulations to everyone involved! This is an amazing thing you are doing, miigwetch!
This is a project that I am very inspired by. I am Anishinaabe myself, and have wanted to see traditional midwifery services brought back to the First Nations people for a very long time.
What was done to First Nations people in Canada is absolutely disgraceful, and this is a small step in the right direction by the Ontario government to repair the damage that was done. I am very hopeful that this project will take hold and blossom into something wonderful.
