Midwife Locum Wanted in Rural Collaborative RM & GP Practice
Cedar House Birth Collective is looking for a midwife locum interested in providing coverage with a flexible start date, but prefer as soon as possible. Preference for someone interested in a longer locum; we have available work for at least 18 months, with possibility of becoming a permanent team member.
We are a friendly, supportive practice located in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We have newly expanded to a collaborative shared care team of 4 midwives and 4 like-minded family doctors. Our vision is to create a sustainable work/life/on call balance within this group in order to best serve our diverse clientele in offering quality, trauma informed maternity care. We rotate clinic days and 12-24hr call shifts. We make sure to schedule ample time off for self care, family and other passions.
Our hospital was newly built in 2017, with 9 private labour-delivery-postpartum suites. We believe one of the best assets of our hospital are our fabulous nursing colleagues who are very supportive; we work closely together with them for our hospital assessments and deliveries. We also have solid working relationships with our paediatric and obstetrical consultants. There is another great midwifery practice in town, and we are able to help each other out for home birth back-ups etc. We use Juno (Oscar) for charting and billing.
The Comox Valley has something for everyone, especially those who love the outdoors. You could find yourself kayaking in the ocean in the morning, and shoe-shoeing or skiing up Mt Washington in the afternoon. There are lakes, rivers, swimming holes, beaches, mountain bike/hiking trails, waterfalls and more, all within our call radius. We have a small-town feel with the benefit of most everything you need or want within a 15 minute drive.
The ideal applicant would have comfort working in rural areas as we are not a tertiary centre and need to transfer out some high risk clients (preterm labours etc). A strong commitment to communication and teamwork is imperative, as is the ability to quickly connect and build rapport with clientele. Come join us if you are interested in the dreamy island life!
