Haida Gwaii has a multidisciplinary maternity team which includes registered midwives, physicians, nurses and doulas, with off-island specialist support. Individuals and families can access prenatal care on Haida Gwaii via all Health Centres.
Planned on-island deliveries are booked at the X̱aayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay – Haida Gwaii Hospital & Health Centre. As we have no C-Section capacity on island, those who are at higher risk for complications during labour and delivery are strongly encouraged to plan to deliver off island. The maternity team works closely with individuals and their families to help them make the best possible plan to suit their needs.
