Magnificent Mezuzahs

Magnificent Mezuzahs

What an exciting few weeks this has been!

Not only did we recently hold our official clinic open house, which gave us the chance to share our beautiful new space with many of our beloved families, friends and colleagues, we also performed the traditional Jewish practice of placing mezuzahs in our doorways.

Mezuzahs are comprised of a small piece of parchment placed within a permanent case and affixed to the inside edge of a doorframe. The parchment is inscribed with special spiritual scriptures from the Jewish bible (Torah) and sealed in a weather-proofed housing. It is believed that these holy scrolls provide a good omen for blessings, health and good fortune. 


May Uptown Midwives & Family Wellness, and all those who pass through our doors grow to see an abundance of these blessings!

It's Official!

We have moved into our new clinic space at:

3424 Bathurst Street (just south of Wilson Ave.)

If you have an upcoming appointment booked with one of our midwives it will be held here.

For those of you experienced with renovations, big moves or even parenthood, you may personally recognize how even the best laid plans are often upended!

Pregnant? No A/C? How to survive this weekend's heatwave

Pregnant? No A/C? How to survive this weekend's heatwave

It's a scorcher out there, folks! And while 45C with the humidex is bad enough for the average person, those of you growing a human are hit especially hard on days like this. As midwives, we often get pages when the mercury passes 30 degrees with complaints of cranky uterine muscles, faintness and generalized discomfort. Here's a primer on keeping your cool when there's a heatwave afoot. 

Decoding labour pains - how to tell the difference between a cranky uterus and the real deal.

Decoding labour pains - how to tell the difference between a cranky uterus and the real deal.

Your uterus, like any other muscle in your body, gets cranky and tired with use and will complain more loudly if you've been particularly active or are a little dehydrated. Unfortunately, the pains tend to be worse at night, just when you're trying to sleep.
