South Okanagan Maternity Centre

The South Okanagan Maternity Centre is a team-based clinic providing collaborative interdisciplinary care for parents with low-risk pregnancies. Family physicians and midwives work together to provide you with pregnancy, birth, and newborn care.

The clinic provides wrap-around care with seamless referrals to other maternity specialists: obstetricians, pediatricians, a perinatal social worker, public health, and lactation consultants. Your maternity professionals use each other’s experience, informed knowledge and personal strengths to provide you with a consistent approach to care.

You will have an opportunity to meet all of the team prior to the birth of your baby and one of them will provide care during labour and delivery at Penticton Regional Hospital (PRH). Clinic services do not include home births at this time. 

Located in a brand-new state-of-the-art space on the ground floor of Penticton Regional Hospital, this clinic gives pregnant parents more choice for their pregnancy journey.

Pregnant parents can be referred to the clinic by their primary care provider or can self-refer. Book your appointment by phone or by visiting the Centre.
