Bloom Community Midwives is a proud teaching practice. We feel strongly that it is important for us to nurture the growth of midwifery and the individuals who choose this role. We want to ensure that there are midwives for all of our children and their future generations.
Midwifery students in this province are trained in the four year Bachelor's degree program at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. They begin their practical supervised experience working with clients and their babies in their second year of training. As each year passes they have increased skills and experience and therefore, take on a greater role in all aspects of providing midwifery care. Midwifery students are honoured to attend your birth and will have hands on roles supporting you in labour and learning the art of catching babies.
The families at Bloom Community Midwives play such an important role in training these future midwives. We greatly value your feedback about the students helping to care for you. We also know that the students truly appreciate all that you have to teach them. On behalf of past and future midwifery students - thank you very much to all of the generous women and babies who have nurtured student midwives.
We hope that you will join us in supporting these students in their journey to becoming midwives. If you have any questions or concerns about how they will be involved in your care please discuss this with your midwives.
