We are a group of Family Physicians belonging to the Division of Maternal and Newborn Care at the Ottawa Hospital. We provide care during pregnancy, during delivery and afterwards for both mom and baby in the hospital and once home. We work at both the General and Civic Campuses. We have various practice settings and call group arrangements as you will see in our bios. Our offices are clinic-based (so not in the hospital) and are located throughout Ottawa.

As family physicians, we do not see pregnancy as an illness. We are experts at normal pregnancy and delivery care, yet bring the medical knowledge to identify and address any potential complications in a timely manner. Each family is unique, and we strongly believe in providing a personalized approach.

Find a doctor

Having a relationship with the physician attending you for your delivery is really helpful. Our various call groups make sure you have an opportunity to know the physicians who will be caring for you in the hospital. Our practice models emphasize continuity of care as all members of our groups work very closely together. We have members who speak different languages. We also have members who work with new immigrant and refugee populations and who can facilitate interpretation services. The Ottawa Hospital also has interpretation services.

Contact any of our offices via telephone to book an appointment.
