We are a diverse group of Registered Midwives. Between us, we speak five languages, including sign language, and strive to bring midwifery care to as many families as possible. We work in both team-based midwifery and solo practice and support each other in our other roles such as instructors, professors, administrators, mothers, preceptors, researchers and health care advocates.
Currently, we offer our services to families in Vancouver and Burnaby with hospital privileges at both BC Women’s and Burnaby Hospitals. Contact us if you have any questions about your catchment.
My second pregnancy was very stressful and needed a fair bit of medical intervention and support. My midwives at Pomegranate were incredibly supportive, patient and helpful. They encouraged and supported my desire to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) by providing with helpful information to help me make informed decisions about my pregnancy. When I needed a consultation with an OB, they worked well with him and were very professional. I had planned a home birth, but needed to transfer to the hospital and the midwife ensured that I was cared for and had the best experience possible, in spite of the change of plans. I was able to have a medication-free VBAC and it was amazing. They provided great post-partum support and breastfeeding assistance. I highly recommend them.
