Growing New Midwives

The team at Access Midwifery and Family Care has years of experience teaching and guiding student midwives and other healthcare students. Like other B.C. practices, we provide a clinical learning environment for student midwives and nursing students. We encourage you to talk to staff about how you can support students and the growth of midwifery practices in BC.

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is one of a growing number of professional midwifery degree programs in Canada. To learn more about how midwives are educated and trained, go to www.midwifery.ubc.ca.

Midwives who have learned their skills through apprenticeship or through training and education in other countries can apply to work as midwives in B.C. through the Multi-jurisdictional Midwifery Bridging Project (MMBP). For more information about this route of entry to midwifery, go to www.cmrc-ccosf.ca.
