Anesthesia

Our Anesthesia Department provides consultations for those women who need it, in conjunction with the High Risk Obstetrical units. Any Family Physician, Midwife, or Obstetrician who practices obstetrics at TOH can ask for an Anesthesia consult – the patient does not necessarily have to be “high risk”. Some women have several questions about how we can help them with the pain of labour, or have had a previous bad experience in labour, and this is reason enough to ask for a referral. Other women have quite extensive medical histories and need our close involvement with the rest of the obstetrical team in order to keep both mom and baby safe during delivery – we do a lot a planning as a team for these cases.

You must be referred by a physician, nurse practitioner or midwife and must include the antenatal forms and pertinent test results
