Today is International Day of the Midwife 2020! On behalf of Northern Health, Vanessa Salmons, the Executive Lead for our Perinatal Program, has a message for midwives in the Northern Health region:

Visit the Midwives Association of BC for more information on the great work done by midwives across the province.

And thank you to all of our care providers, support staff, physicians, and all members of the NH team for their commitment during these difficult days!
