About Us

We are a group consisting of experienced family physicians and obstetricians that provides comprehensive 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. Our office was established in August 2022.

At 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.
