According to the Ministry, "With COVID-19 and the increased number of home births, we know that reliable access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and critical supplies is vital to safeguard your health and that of your patients. As such, the Ministry of Health is extending the distribution of PPE and critical supplies to midwives at no cost for both clinic work and home births through the Home Birth Supplies Program until the end of the COVID-19 pandemic response."
