Website Prairie Midwives
Have you been looking for just the right work family? People that love what they do, love the people they work with, clients and midwives included? For a community that welcomes midwives wholeheartedly, and works well in a collaborative framework? Believe it or not, Red Deer may be the place for you!
Prairie Midwives is looking for a full-time general registrant to share our love of midwifery in the ‘rural/urban’ city of Red Deer. Red Deer is situated in the middle of Central Alberta, about 90 minutes between both the urban centers of Calgary and Edmonton, and only 2 hours from the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Our population is about 100,000 people. We serve communities outside of Red Deer, however, our catchment is generally within a 30-minute radius. Some travel is required.
Prairie Midwives has been an established practice since 2012, we have grown steadily for the last 10 years and are looking for an 8th midwife to join our team. Our clinic is located in an easy, central location, right downtown and we are the only midwifery practice in the city. We are a close-knit group of women, dedicated to our craft. We have a combination of primary call midwives and shared call midwives. We are currently looking for a midwife to provide shared call with a partner to manage a caseload of 80 courses of care per year. Starting date is July 1, 2022 but is negotiable. Our midwives hold privileges primarily at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, where we have been welcomed as part of the healthcare team. It is a level II hospital with access to specialties when needed, and we do provide waterbirth services in our hospital. We have excellent relationships with our fellow care providers and work well in multi-disciplinary teams, when required. We would also love to highlight our high homebirth rate of at least 40-50% of all births.
The successful candidate will require a strong work ethic and firmly seated passion in delivering midwifery care. We are incredibly proud of our workplace culture that fosters supportive care for both clients and midwives, and anyone that joins our practice would have to have excellent interpersonal communication skills and a commitment to meeting and working within our vision.
You must be able to work as a Registered Midwife in Alberta, and have all certifications as per the CMA, privileging through AHS, and membership and practice insurance with the AAM in order to be a successful applicant. We are seeking a commitment of at least one year, but would prefer a two-year contract. Please send a resume, cover letter, and references to email@example.com.
