The Alberta Midwifery Request for Care is a wait pool not a "top-of-the-list, first-in list". The wait pool is unranked and requesting care does NOT mean that you will get the first midwifery care spot that is available in your area.
Even if there are no midwives practicing in your area, we encourage all pregnant people in Alberta who would like midwifery care to apply, as this helps demonstrate the need for midwifery services in your community and supports future workforce planning.
Note: Your application will only be seen by the practices you selected, we encourage you to select multiple or as many practices within your area which may increase your chance of being taken into care. You can edit your application at any time to change which practices see your information.
Multiple registrations will not increase your chance of being accepted into care and causes additional administrative burden.
