Short Term Locum
Abbotsford, British Columbia
Mar 10, 2019 to Jun 30, 2019
West Coast Health Collective (WCHC) is looking for one FULL TIME Midwife to cover THREE AND A HALF MONTHS starting March 2019. We are excited for the possibilities of applicants from all Provinces and welcome new graduate applicants.
AT WCHC we believe in collaborative care and share a commitment to the community as well as informed choice. We have excellent interprofessional relationships and currently hold privileges at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and will soon have privileges at Langley Memorial Hospital.
Our catchment area includes: Abbotsford, Langley as well as parts of Mission and Chilliwack.
Our midwives currently work in a primary care model amongst a team of supportive midwives, doulas, traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and registered massage therapy. We are flexible and have excited about our caseloads and call schedules. This has allowed for more personalized care for our clients and a more balanced work/life schedule for our midwives. We value regular and meaningful time off and strive to work collaboratively with schedules that work for everyone. This means we are flexible and are committed to supporting one another for regular time off. We are open to brainstorming other models and will take the successful candidates suggestions into consideration.
Our Midwives are experienced and passionate about home birth as well as information sessions around the safety of homebirth and other hot topics such as placenta encapsulation, birth art, optimal fetal positioning, menstrual health/cup workshops, etc.
Our beautiful and cozy clinic is located conveniently in the heart of Abbotsford. E are also close to many great areas for hiking, camping and adventuring, We’re a quick jaunt over to Harrison Hot Springs, Vancouver, the Interior and of course beautiful Washington D.C. And let’s not forget Vancouver Island and Whistler aren’t too far for a weekend away. Abbotsford International Airport also makes travelling out of province or country fast and convenient.
We are hoping the right locum will be available to start March 2019.
Remuneration is consistent with British Columbia Midwives’ Locum fees, unless a permanent position with us is granted and then this will be renegotiated.
