Our goal is to help women who are contemplating pregnancy, are pregnant or are now new mothers, keep up-to-date on the latest medical information; healthy pregnancies lead to healthy children and healthy adults!


This website reviews all the topics we deal with when speaking with patients about their pregnancies. Various areas of the site will continue to expand as new research emerges and articles will be continually updated. Where neccessary, we have provided external website links that offer reliable resources on pregnancy and women's health. Too often, women will come to clinic with concerns, worries or anxieties about their pregnancy because of something they’ve read on the internet, but because anyone can publish content on the internet, much of what is out there is potentially biased, outdated, or completely wrong.

The MotHERS Program was founded in 2011 by Dr. Graeme Smith, an Obstetrician at Queen's University and Kingston General Hospital. Dr. Smith is a Maternal-Fetal-Medicine specialist, trained to care for high risk pregnancies. He has further expertise in postpartum health, specifically in the link between pregnancy complications and heart disease risk. The content contained in the MotHERS Program is written and/or approved by Dr. Smith and as such is a trusted source of information on maternal health.
