Breast Pumps

Our practice has two hospital-grade Medela Symphony breast pumps available for clients to borrow free of charge. Pump kits can be purchased from us at cost.

Birth Pools

We currently have professional-grade regular size and mini size pools from Birth Pool in a Box. We lend these pools out (with pumps to inflate the pool and drain the pool) free of charge to clients who are interested in labouring and/or birthing in water at home. Disposable pool liners and hoses are available for purchase at cost. For more information about Birth Pool in Box pools, click HERE. We also have single-use Passages Pools for sale at cost for clients who prefer to keep the pool.

TENS Machines

Our midwives carry Elle TENS machines with disposable electrodes for use during labour (free of charge). TENS (Trancutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) can be especially useful for clients experiencing back labour.

Breastfeeding Pillows

We keep several popular brands of breastfeeding pillows at the clinic (with waterproof covers), for clients to try out before buying their own (we do not sell them), and to make breastfeeding at our clinic more comfortable during postpartum appointments.
