Welcome to The Ottawa Hospital Division of Maternal and Newborn Care.

Dr. Daisy Moores, MD, CCFP, Head, Division of Maternal and Newborn Care, Lecturer, University of Ottawa Department of Family Medicine.

About Us

Members of the Division of Maternal and Newborn Care are family physicians involved in low-risk obstetrics and/or newborn care at both the Civic and the General Campuses. Members work closely with the University of Ottawa Department of Family Medicine residency program, through the teaching of low-risk obstetrics to Family Medicine residents. For more information regarding the residency program please visit

Low-risk Obstetrics

The family physicians who provide low-risk obstetrical services to their patients follow their pregnancies in their private offices in the community and maintain continuity with the patient throughout, including after the birth. The family physicians work closely with their colleagues, the obstetricians, at both campuses to ensure their patients receive the best care possible.

Newborn Care

Several members of the Division are only involved in the care of their patients’ babies upon delivery. They are called to the nursery to care for these newborns and this care continues in their private practices.
