Jules Atkins, RM

I am a B.C. trained and Registered Midwife with over 20 years of experience providing care to birthing women and their families.

I have practiced in many settings, including Salt Spring Island, Victoria, Tsawwassen and the Fraser Valley, Vancouver and now the Sunshine Coast.  I am comfortable with home and hospital births, including water births, and believe that women should decide where they will feel most comfortable and safe for their labour and birth.

I believe that all women have an instinctive knowledge and ability to labour, give birth and breastfeed their babies.  I also believe that all women are unique individuals with unique values, life situations and desires regarding their pregnancies, labours and births.

I see my role as helping you to achieve the healthiest and happpiest pregnancy, birth and baby as possible by providing you with information, support and appropriate clinical care tailored to your needs and wants.

Your well-being, and the safe arrival and health of your baby are the most important goals in my care for you.

I encourage the use of alternative therapies such as chiropractic, massage, herbal remedies and homeopathics.  I am also happy to consult with other health care professionals, including obstetricians, pediatricians, family physicians, nurses and social workers to ensure that you receive the best and most appropriate care available.

I have two grown children, both delivered by midwives, at home, over 30 years ago (when midwifery was still ‘illegal’.)  It was partly my experiences with midwifery care that convinced me of the importance of midwifery care and choice for all women, and made me decide to become a midwife myself.  I also have two wonderful (of course!) grandchildren.

Best wishes and I hope to see you soon!

Jules
