For as long back as we can trace, there have been midwives in our family: my mother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and likely others whose names have been lost to time. I feel in my heart that I inherited from them a fundamental belief in women’s innate ability to give birth naturally and powerfully. Some of my fondest moments have been attending births together with my mother, who has imparted to me over the years both the spirit and knowledge of birthing women and their attendants: the joy, the mystery, the tears.
I am proud to be a co-creator of Pomegranate, and am committed to creating a vision of community-centered care that prioritizes access to quality healthcare for all pregnant women, including those who have traditionally been marginalized.
Having moved to Vancouver in 2004, I became immediately and deeply attached to the seashores and rainforests of the West Coast. In addition to practicing midwifery, I love indulging in my other passion: photography. I also find as much time as possible to indulge in quilting, yoga and frequent dinner parties with friends catered by my talented partner.
Pomegranate is an amazing and special place that builds and supports a positive birth community in Vancouver. We had them as our health care providers with the birth of our son last year (2011) and had a wonderful and supportive experience, we felt very taken care of especially post-partum when it becomes the most challenging. We would highly recommend them as as a Midwife clinic 🙂
