We are located in Komoka, Ontario and have a hybrid style call model. Our catchment area is London- Middlesex. We mostly provide care to people in London and slightly west of London. You can live anywhere in the catchment area and within 30-60 minutes of London Health Sciences Centre. We have midwives who prefer to work in shared care and midwives who prefer to work in primary care. We believe that every attempt should be made to support the sustainability of the midwife. Our team values equity and fairness, and our approach is to ensure that midwives do the best they can to carry their BCC workload, and to support others when in need. We have anywhere from 2-3 midwives on each chart team, and weekly practice meetings where we come together for potlucks and share cases, and new knowledge, and express gratitude for each other. We are willing to start a caseload for the successful applicant and our mentorship includes having midwives who will attend with you to all births until you feel you are competent and safe to attend by yourself. We use Accuro EMR for charting.
Our team of midwives values mentorship and support, and you will have an assigned mentor who will spend time with you supporting your orientation and learning of hospital and community standards and resources. Team expectations include supporting midwives at all times when on-call, whether new to the practice or not. We also expect off-call time to be protected.
