To me, midwifery is both an art and a science, a career and a calling. It is truly an honor to accompany families along their journeys of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. My objective as your midwife is to help you make choices about your body and your baby that make sense for you, and to use my heart, hands and head to help make your birth experience safe and satisfying.
I became a midwife in 2008, and have been working at Pomegranate since 2010. I count myself very lucky to come to work every day to help build this dynamic community of midwives, complementary practitioners, staff – all centered around the amazing familes we care for! Midwifery care is customized by design, and at Pomegranate we are committed to providing inclusive, personalized, sensitive care to a diverse range of families.
I work part-time in the clinical skills lab at the UBC Midwifery program and teach neonatal resuscitation and midwifery emergency skills. I have additional training in contraceptive prescribing and carseat safety.
I live, work and play in East Van with my partner and our two kids. Being a midwife is a busy job, but in my spare time I enjoy entertaining family and friends, studying Spanish, picnicking at Trout Lake, and catching up on sleep!
The midwives at Pomegranate were excellent. We loved them so much after having our first child in their care we jumped at the chance to use them again with our second. Of course the birth of my first was long and tiresome yet they were there for me the whole time. With many hours of on and off labor our midwife stayed with us day and night until our baby finally decided to arrive. From jaundice, nursing challenges to yeast infections I trusted the knowledge and expert advice that the team of midwives were able to give us. I have recommended Pomegranate to friends and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for exceptional care during and after pregnancy.
