About Us

NEST Maternity and Lactation is Airdrie’s local Maternity Clinic.  Located next to the Lab in the Highland PCN building, we offer top quality maternity care from 10 weeks pregnant until 6 weeks PostPartum. 

Most of our patients deliver at the newly renovated Labour and Delivery Unit of Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary, however, we can also arrange for delivery at Foothills or Olds hospital if preferred. 

We also offer IUD insertions and removals, Birth Control, Pap tests and Lactation Support.

Please have your Family Doctor refer you. If you do not have a Family Doctor you may self refer, just call the clinic to discuss. Dr. Katy Hicks MD, Dr. Nicole LaBrie MD, and Dr. Melissa Torriero MD are the dedicated Medical Doctors at NEST Maternity.
