The BC Medical Services Plan covers maternity care provided by a Family Doctor, Obstetrician or a Midwife. For your main maternity care provider in Chilliwack, you can choose to see a Family Doctor specializing in obstetrics or a Registered Midwife. Obstetricians do not offer primary care in Chilliwack, but your doctor may involve them if your pregnancy is or becomes higher risk like twins, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
The image below shows when you could see each type of provider and when this may change. The triangles in the image show the pathway to each type of provider. For example, if you have a low-risk, healthy pregnancy, your main maternity care provider may be a Chilliwack Obstetrical Group Family Doctor or a Registered Midwife.
