About Birth Partnership

Our Team

Jane practices as a solo midwife, and she relies on Jennifer to help attend to the administrative details of your care.  

Birth Partnership Victoria supports the expansion of midwifery services to BC women by participating as preceptors in the UBC Bachelor of Midwifery program. Students are placed for a length of time to facilitate continuity of care as well as the development of foundational clinical skills.  We thank you for welcoming them as part of your care team.
