Seeking Locum Midwife to Cover a Maternity Leave
June 1, 2020 - July 1, 2021
Malachite Midwives in beautiful Kelowna, BC is seeking a midwife to cover a maternity leave starting June 1 2020 - July 1 2021, with consideration for a long-term, full-time position if the midwife and team are the rightmatch.
We are a team practice made up of 6 full-time midwives, in 3 teams of 2 RMs that works together very collegially. We take pride in our peaceful work environment. Our practice operates out of a house in a quiet neighbourhood close to the hospital, hiking and biking trails and downtown. We have a part-time MOA who does an excellent job of supporting us. We use OSCAR for electronic medical records and aspire to minimize our footprints. The shared office space offers two comfortable clinic rooms and a lovely birth suite for use by eligible clients seeking an alternative home birth location. Our home birth rate is often 30-50%. We work out of Kelowna General Hospital, which is a level 2 facility and are proud to say our inter professional relationships are improving.
Our midwives practice in 2 person teams, with often 8 EDD/month/team. Regular off-call time is negotiated within teams and typically includes a week-on/week off-call style rotation, with additional off time when possible. Long-term positions offer up to 2 months of holiday during the contract.
Midwives can visit our website at www.malachitemidwives.ca to learn more about us. Please email us letters of interest with CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org. All registrants must already be registered to practice in Canada.
We have a great thing going on here and encourage you to apply!
