Pregnancy and Birth

North York General Hospital in Toronto provides care throughout your pregnancy from prenatal screening through labour and birth, to the postpartum experience. See our online Guide to Pregnancy and Birth.

We work in collaboration with you and your family in all the decisions concerning your care. Our primary goal at North York General Hospital is to provide patient- and family-centred care.

Our Prenatal Assessment Services, Volunteer Services Birthing Centre, Mother and Baby Unit, and the Tippet Foundation Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are conveniently integrated together on the second floor of the General site.

The health care team ensures the complex physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients are met.

Our health care team includes:

  • Obstetricians
  • Family doctors
  • Midwives
  • Registered nurses (RN)
  • Registered practical nurses (RPN)
  • Social workers
  • Lactation consultants
  • Team attendants
  • Paediatricians
  • Neonatologists
  • Anaesthetists

As a community academic hospital, we collaboratively train physicians, midwives, nurses, and other health care practitioners. Students and residents experience first hand how the delivery of high quality obstetrical care impacts new families.
