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.
Take a tour of Carrie’s office below and enjoy the art on the walls provided by Otylia Photography.

“My husband and I feel very lucky to have found Paulina to document the final days of our twin pregnancy and the beginning of our adventure with our new babies. Paulina has a remarkable eye for capturing the joy and beauty of maternity, resulting in gorgeous photos that captured the hope and promise we felt in the days leading up to our twin’s birth. In their newborn photos, she was able to showcase our baby’s first interactions as brother and sister and their unique personalities at a very young age. Breastfeeding has been a beautiful part of our journey as a growing family, and as a nurse and doula, Paulina made me feel comfortable and at ease as she captured stunning photos of me nursing our newborn twins. Paulina has a true talent for capturing life’s special moments and we will always treasure the precious images that she took for our family.”
