West Hill Midwifery in Prince George, BC is actively recruiting for a midwife to join our busy practice. We will soon be a practice of three midwives who are seeking a fourth midwife to join the team as one of our current team is moving to be one of the first regulated midwives in the Yukon.
Rachel was a midwife in the UK from 2002 prior to emigrating to Canada in 2019. She is currently the Head of the Division of Midwifery at UHNBC. Ellen is just completing her new registrant year after moving from Ontario and Billy is Canadian but trained as a midwife in Australia with a wealth of experience working in rural Australia.
Prince George is the regional centre for the North with a population of around 74,000. We benefit from a variety of shops, restaurants and leisure activities. Life often centres around the outdoors with our own ski hill, cross country skiing centre, hiking trails, lakes for swimming, fishing and boating. There is also an active arts scene and in non-Covid times the CN centre hosts big name concerts and shows. We are only a 75 minute flight to Vancouver, Victoria and Calgary for when the big city calls... Prince George is a very affordable city with average house prices under $500,000.
UHNBC offers a modern facility with very supportive midwifery, medical and nursing colleagues. There is 24 hour coverage from obstetric, pediatric and anaesthetic specialists. The hospital has integrated waterbirth and we have a 20 percent home birth rate. Demand for midwifery care is high in Prince George, we have many repeat clients with waitlists every month.
We are open to a variety of team models, various call schedules and fair compensation with minimal overhead. As a practice, we mentor students, seek out teaching and learning opportunities, support the expansion of midwifery in the north and support our midwives to pursue a healthy work/life balance. The practice is supportive of midwives in attaining their personal or professional goals.
We welcome experienced and newly registered midwives to apply. Rural experience is an advantage. The ideal candidate would have good organizational skills, a strong work ethic and be familiar with/willing to learn OSCAR EMR. We have excellent administrative support from our MOA who works from home.
