Website Pomegranate Midwives, Jade Team

We are excited to announce that Pomegranate Community Midwives is looking to grow our team of midwives serving families in Burnaby, BC. Burnaby is a rapidly growing community and we are thrilled to be able to offer midwifery care to the the families there. Our clients are from diverse backgrounds and we enjoy learning about various cultural practices surrounding their pregnancies, birth and postpartum.

We currently have one team of two midwives, Jade Team, doing births at home and Burnaby Hospital. We are building a second team of two to work along-side Jade Team, in order to exchange vacation relief and support. We would expect this new team will take 4-8 clients per month.

We are looking for midwives who are very comfortable with providing choice of birth place (we love home birth), who are very comfortable with the provision of informed consent (occasionally we have clients who choose to decline community standards), and who are looking to work on a smaller team to provide strong continuity of care. Additionally we are looking for midwives who are keen to be involved at the hospital, joining working groups and committees. Although there have been midwives at BUH for 15 years, we are first team in many years to have BUH as our primary site. It is important to us to have strong midwifery representation at our site.

We enjoy good working relationships with our consultants and the nursing staff at Burnaby Hospital. Burnaby Hospital is a level 2 hospital so our consultants and OR staff are not on site 24-7.

This new team will need to build their case load and it may be optimal for a midwife who is looking to work part-time until the case load is fully established, at which time a second midwife would join the team. Start date by June 15th is required, however starting sooner is always an option, as we have a waitlist with EDDs as soon as February or March. Clinic space and MOA support will be available during this time. Existing BGH privileges a bonus, otherwise we will aid in the privileging process.

Our office is located in East Vancouver just a few blocks from the Burnaby border. We have full MOA staffing and we use OSCAR as our EMR. Meditech is the FHA EMR so knowledge of it is a bonus. All the teams at Pomegranate work hard to support each other in order to provide optimal care to our clients, including pager coverage after long births, urgent home visits, and home birth back up. Our clinic offers our clients RMT, Physiotherapy, and remote counselling services in addition to prenatal classes, and more.

Come join us!
