My practice of midwifery includes being an active member of my professional group and co-founder of Pomegranate Community Midwives. Pomegranate grew out of dreams that Kat and I shared during our midwifery education and I am proud to be a part of our community of health care providers, instructors, support staff and families.
As a mother of three, I appreciate the special relationship between midwife and patient, and how we can be empowered by our experience of pregnancy and birth. Birth and motherhood are life-altering experiences and as a midwife, I strive to preserve this while supporting outreach initiatives that promote birth as a normal, healthy event. With excellent resources and expert colleagues in our community, midwifery is part of delivering a high standard of maternity care here in BC.
I live with my family on a farm on the Sunshine Coast where I have opened a new practice, Suncoast Midwifery. I love the outdoors, sharing food with my family and friends and enjoying simple pleasures fully.
My wife and I had a fantastic experience with our Pomegranate team! (Kat, Marijke, and Yarra) It was our first birth and they made it a lot less stressful. Someone was always available to answer any concerns, even at 1 in the morning, and you know you’ll never be able to reach an OB GYN at that time! I cannot recommend them highly enough and I recommend pomegranate to everyone I know who is having a baby!
