It has been a great pleasure to get to know Carrie Sizer, Registered Midwife of Vernon Midwifery. Carrie is new to Vernon, recently moved from the UK last summer and is working with Sylvia Nicholson at North Okanagan Midwifery. She recently opened a beautiful office in the Alpine Centre off Kalamalka Lake Road and is accepting new patients!
Carrie and Sylvia provide care for pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period for women anticipating normal, low risk pregnancies and births. They attend women at their labour and birth at home as well as in hospital.
Their services are covered entirely by the BC medical services plan (MSP) but they say not to worry if you don’t have MSP, midwifery care is available to private clients too.
Carrie and Sylvia strive to provide care that is evidence based, non-authoritarian, supports informed choice and that recognizes the woman as the primary decision-maker. Read more about midwifery care here.
