As another academic year has come to a close, the UBC Midwifery program is extremely proud to congratulate an exceptional group of new midwives who will be joining Canada’s maternity care team. Having worked closely with the graduates over the past four years of their education at UBC, we have had the opportunity to witness the dedication and talent that each of these individuals have brought to their inquiry and practice. Their commitment to partnering with mother’s and families towards comprehensive, compassionate, and evidence based care bodes well for the future of Midwifery practice and the profession in BC.
The Graduates of 2013 will enter practice in both rural and urban regions across BC, including Vancouver, Victoria, Squamish, Langley, Abbotsford, and Haida Gwaii, Victoria, and greater Vancouver. Each possesses unique and important qualities which are essential to being a Midwife. Through their talents in research, their passion for serving rural and at risk communities, their generosity of spirit or the superior skills which they bring to each client interaction, these women are sure to be leaders and guardians for the future generations of families in this country.
We celebrate their accomplishments and look forward to the many contributions they will continue to bring to Midwifery for years to come.
