The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) was the first hospital in Ontario to establish a home-like birthing unit. With close to 5,000 deliveries each year, the hospital’s Family Maternity Centre has an excellent reputation for high-quality care in a culturally sensitive atmosphere.

Our families are cared for by an interprofessional team that includes physicians, nurses, obstetricians, paediatricians and midwives. Private labour-delivery-recovery rooms are available, and following the birth of their baby, families will be moved to the room of their choice.

A midwifery program is also provided by TSH in partnership with Diversity Midwives. This service offers women the choice between a home or hospital birth. Patients may self-refer for a midwife.
