As we do every year, we have reached out to families to share their birth stories from the perspective of their little one – a love letter, if you will, to their midwifery team. We want to thank the incredible midwives that work in our communities for their dedication, especially during these uncertain times when their work puts them and their families at risk to continue to offer their unparalleled care to birthing families.
One of the major questions us doulas get asked is what to pack in your hospital bag when you have a baby. The majority of birthing families are searching for hospital bag lists on the internet or getting them from their local hospital and do you know what we have realized?
Last month we headed out to Headwaters Health Care Centre, a hospital we work at frequently supporting our clients, and sat down with Clinical Nurse Specialist Lucy Gilmore and talked about her career, working in maternal health care, and in this community.
