We are an established group of family physicians that provides low-risk maternity care services to patients in Calgary. Our group delivers out of Rockyview General Hospital where our physicians are available for around-the-clock coverage for our patients. We perform prenatal care out of a collective of offices within the surrounding region of the hospital.
At the Avenue Maternity Clinic, we believe in providing exceptional family-centered maternity care. We encourage our patients and their partners to be active participants in making joint decisions about their care.
Pregnancy and birth are among the most significant stages in a parent’s life. We recognize the equal importance of all areas of patient care—physical, social, and emotional. We also respect the role that family and community plays in supporting our patients through these life changes. Patients are welcome to involve support people of their choice in their delivery experience
