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: https://www.bcmidwives.com/
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!
