Call for Midwives
Rankin Inlet, Nunavut
Oct 14, 2019
Greetings from Nunavut!
The small but determined midwives working in Nunavut are putting the call out to our colleagues in the south to see if there any midwives who would like to join our team by filling a casual position in Rankin Inlet. We are offering 4-8 week contracts with some flexibility, starting mid-October onwards.
Rankin Inlet is a community on the western shore of the Hudson Bay in the central Arctic. It has a population of 2800 people with easy access to both the Tundra and the bay. Rankin Inlet provides an excellent opportunity to explore Canada’s unique northern environment. We are host to amazing northern lights, incredible full moon evenings, lots of snow and renowned winter weather. To balance the long winter nights, spring and summer bring almost 24 hours of daylight, migrating birds, caribou and beautiful wild flowers.
The birthing Centre has been providing antenatal, intrapartum and postpartum care to women from Rankin Inlet since 1993. Consultation and transfer takes place with obstetricians at Women from the surrounding 7 communities can also choose to give birth in Rankin Inlet. Midwives travel to other communities in the Kivalliq region, when we have enough staff, to provide prenatal care.
Please do feel free to contact Rachel Jones RM for further information. firstname.lastname@example.org 867-645-8260.
