Meet the team at Pomegranate Community Midwives, from left to right: Shawna Robinson, 2nd year UBC midwifery student; Yarra Vostrcil, midwife; Kat Montgomery, midwife; Jazzmin Nagy, office administrator; Allison Campbell, midwife; and Beth Duncan, midwife. Pomegranante is one of the largest midwifery clinics in Vancouver, and has been serving women and families in our community since 2005. "I love watching partners become parents and getting to snuggle newborns," said Jazzmin, who also attends births with Pomegranate midwives as a doula. "It is such an honour to be a part of such a transformational time in women's lives."
Our executive director, Patricia Barnes, was pleased to participate in a community mapping and clean-up organized residents of the Vancouver Heights area, and funded through a Hastings North Community Small Grant, last Saturday. Congrats to the organizers and volunteers. Community building at its best!
