Community Midwives of Kingston

Do you offer waterbirth as an option?

Yes.  The use of water in labour can be an extremely effective form of pain relief.  For women planning to labour at home or planning a homebirth, we offer the use of our inflatable labour pools.  These pools are specifically designed for labour and birth and come with a specially prepared kit.  Ask your midwife for more information.

KHSC now offers the option of water immersion for labour and birth. There are 2 labour rooms with birthtubs, which are available on a first come first serve basis.  Please speak with your midwife about this.

Lots of great information available at
