Mandy Reid, RM BSc(H), BScN

Midwifery is a true calling for me, which I first had the fortune of exploring first as a volunteer in West Africa in 2000-2001 and in Malawi in 2003. During those years I developed a true passion for women’s reproductive rights and choices, especially in areas where health care is difficult to access. I attained my BScN through UBC then did an apprenticeship in Bali, Indonesia, under a renowned American midwife (Robin Lim) before getting my Canadian license through the IMPP at Ryerson University. I worked in rural Ontario for my first year of practice in a predominantly Amish and Mennonite community, doing mostly home births, an experience that I cherish and will never forget. However my homesickness never went away and I knew I needed to come back to the West Coast, but before that, I went to Haiti to do post-earthquake maternity care. Upon returning to Vancouver I worked for South Community Birth Program, before & after I had a home birth with my son (one of my midwives was a good friend and Pomegranate midwife) and joined the Pomegranate Midwives in 2016. I feel fortunate to be a part of a wonderful team of midwives within a truly supportive practice which strives to make midwifery accessible to a variety of women and families.

I’m very involved in music in my spare time and love exploring the great outdoors with my little guy. I’m also an avid gardener and spend lots of time tending to my many plants. I’m a traveler at heart and have explored dozens of countries all over the world and hope to do international work with midwives again.

Testimonials

I had a great experience at Pomegranate. Over two pregnancies, I worked with 5 different midwives, and felt cared for and respected. Every midwife I met with was open minded, answered questions honestly and neutrally, and left me empowered to make my own choices. They were strong advocates for my birth preferences, even when my plans deviated from the recommendations of a consulting OB. I strongly believe that with other care providers, I would have been pressured during my pregnancy and birth and that it would have had a tremendous impact on my experience. I am a strong advocate for informed choice and woman-centered care and I never hesitate to refer friends to Pomegranate.
