Mighty Oak Midwifery Care is located in the beautiful community of Kamloops, within the ancestral, unceded lands of the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc People, and commonly known as part of the Thompson-Okanagan region of British Columbia.
We are welcoming expressions of interest starting Summer 2023! Start date flexible.
This is an opportunity to enjoy a low-volume, primary/continuity model of care within the support of a larger practice group. We can accommodate two additional full time midwives.
There may be opportunities in the future for small shared caseload group models and collaborative care models with our FP group, as community need continues to evolve.
Model: Clients are assigned a primary midwife. Each midwife carries 4-5 primary clients per month based on individual preference. The midwifery group supports each other for back up, regular off call and holidays. Our midwives work autonomously and cooperatively. Each midwife takes 8 weeks holiday per year and has regular days off-call throughout the each month.
Our homebirth rate is generally around 30%. We have a lovely warm clinic space that also houses group prenatal classes and a team of professional doulas and CBEs. Our office is established with Accuro EMR and we have MOA support.
Royal Inland Hospital is a Level 2 hospital supporting 1100 – 1200 births per year. Midwifery services here were established in 2008 and we have excellent working relationships with our consultants and nursing staff. Three of the RNs from LDR / NICU are also second attendants.
Kamloops is an urban setting with a rural feel! There are plenty of family activities and outdoor adventures to enjoy, including water-sports, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, and skiing and snowboarding (Sun Peaks, just 45 minutes from Kamloops, is the second largest ski-hill in Canada).
