In recognition of National Aboriginal Day on June 21, the MABC is pleased to present Evelyn George as our June Midwife of the Month for her dedication to the advancement of Indigenous midwives and Indigenous peoples' access to midwifery care in BC. Evelyn is a Nipissing-Anishinaabe registered midwife from Ontario, living and working in the BC Interior. She is the Indigenous Lead for the MABC, co-chair of the MABC's Committee for Indigenous Birthing and co-chair of the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives. Evelyn comes from a lineage of midwives on both sides of her family who used to work in the old ways. Today she is one of four working midwives in her extended family. She's also an avid snowboarder.
