Midwifery

Charlotte Grant, Registered Midwife, BA

My desire to become a midwife was inspired by a passion for social justice, a dedication to reproductive rights, and a commitment to client-centred pregnancy and birth care. 

 

Prior to pursuing my love for midwifery, I completed a degree in Honours Anthropology and Anthropological Archaeology from UBC. Studying anthropology gave me the opportunity to explore my fascination with human cultures and global issues. Alongside my passion for archaeology, I began delving into the body of research surrounding anthropology and birth, and learning more about the care that midwives offer. It was actually at a field school that I made the exciting decision to apply for the UBC Midwifery Program, when my colleagues pointed out that even in the middle of an archaeological dig, I couldn’t seem to stop talking about midwifery! 

 

During my time in the UBC Midwifery Program, I had the privilege of training with midwives and doctors in New Westminster, Vancouver, Nelson, as well as in the communities of Hoima and Masaka in Uganda during a 6-week global health placement. I am constantly amazed by the strength of families as they embark on their unique journeys through pregnancy, birth, and parenthood, and I am honoured to be a part of your care team at Bloom.

 

When I’m not catching babies, you can find me baking a loaf of sourdough bread, cooking, doing jigsaw puzzles, snuggling my kitty (O’Malley), or outdoors on a run, hike, or bike ride.

We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we provide care is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
