We are a rural/remote facility without NICU/ICU and require our midwives to have strong emergency response skills as there is a significant transport time to a higher level of care. Furthermore, we require any new midwives to have an understanding of the surrounding culture in the area, which can be reviewed.
Practice fees are $700 per course of care to Loving Arms Midwifery and $140 per course of care to the AAM.
The NR will most likely work under a primary care model with support from the other midwife in the practice. However, this will be discussed further when a NR is chosen, as there is a possibility of a shared care model too. We have administrative staff available during business hours that handles our scheduling, intakes and running lab tests. The NR will have 4 weeks of paid and covered time off, similar to the other midwife and how this will be taken will be determined once hired. Alternate holiday time can also be discussed.
We have some doula's in the area that offer free services for midwifery clients. All disposable equipment is provided by the practice, as well as homebirth equipment. We have a bedside ultrasound and NST machine available in our clinic space.
