N.B Marie is no longer a nurse. She has not been a member of the Ordre des Infirmières et Infirmiers du Québec since 2016. She has also been retired from the health network since 2016. Please note that some videos were shot while she was a member of the Order, which explains the title of perinatal nurse indicated at the time, which is no longer effective today.

Johanne Royer, a midwife, talks with Marie about her profession. What type of training did she get? What’s her role during pregnancy, childbirth and after the birth of the baby? How do midwives monitor the pregnancy, and how frequent are visits?
