Headwaters Midwives: Ushering in New Life

Sep 13, 2012

One of the most popular reasons women are drawn to midwifery care is because it allows low-risk mothers the option of giving birth in the hospital or at home.

In The Hills is an independent, locally owned print and online magazine that has earned its reputation as the best-read, best-loved magazine in Headwaters.

The magazine is delivered to more than 40,000 homes and farms throughout Caledon, Erin, Dufferin, Orangeville and Creemore – up to double the circulation of any other local publication. And it is available to visitors at local inns, restaurants, specialty retail stores and other tourist locations.
