Resources

Here you will find a library of resources to guide you. We have compiled these from other pertinent resources and research studies into a format that we hope you will find readable, user-friendly and… enjoyable. They do not replace meaningful discussions with your midwife and are meant to supplement your experience with us. We update them as frequently as we can, but we recognize that some of them get overlooked. Please request permission from us if you plan to replicate them or use them for other purposes.

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.

Midwifery Intake Form

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PREGNANCY! When we receive your form, our office staff will check to see if we have room in our clinic during the time that you are due. Someone will contact you within the week to let you know, and if so, book an initial appointment with one of our midwives. If you have not received a call by then, please feel free to send another form and/or give us a call at 604-255-5556.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT: You will have a 30-40 minute visit where you will meet one of the midwives on your assigned team. During this time, she will discuss with you what to expect from midwifery care in general, as well as how this may apply to your specific needs.

IN THE MEANTIME: Feel free to have a look at our website, especially the Client Handouts at www.pomegranate-midwives.com/resources. If you are still in the first trimester, you may be interested in handouts such as Coping With Nausea, Genetic Screening Options, etc.

CONNECT WITH US ONLINE: You may also want to check out our online community on Facebook for the latest news about what is happening in and around our community. This is our primary way of connecting with our clients about our classes and events, happenings around Vancouver, as well as interesting pregnancy research and information - with the occasional juicy tidbit.

PRIVACY POLICY: Obviously, by sending in your form you have given us your email. We would like you to know that we have never and will never sell or distribute your email in any way, but use it only for communication between you and our office. This includes adding you to our mailout list - once you are confirmed as a client - which will happen approximately four times per year and will include info about clinic events, e.g. our annual client picnic. Please let our office know if you would prefer to be taken off this list.
