BC Green party state they " an integrated, multi-disciplinary healthcare system in which the workload of doctors is reduced by enabling other healthcare professionals such as nurse practitioners and midwives to provide appropriate services." Does this mean more funding for midwifery students? Currently only 20 students are able to enroll every year at UBC. What would the green party do to support and midwives in BC, to better support families? Also, evidence based research has proven the many benefits to mothers and babies( physically and emotionally), of having a doula present at their birth. Would the green party support having a doulas fees covered by the province?? This would guarantee my vote, and I will work tirelessly to campaign for this benefit to our society. I believe this is positive step forward to showing your commitment to our health and safety as well as womans rights.
