Hello! My name is Sarah Bjorgan and I am the resident Midwife in the Alberni Natural Health Clinic.
It is a true honor to journey with others in their childbearing years. My favorite part of being a Midwife is that I get to meet people I would not have had the chance to otherwise and in such an important time. I get to see the strength of people through transitions and challenges which are all for the love of a little one. I am proud that midwifery is free to the patient, well integrated into the medical system and offers informed choice based on evidence.
I come to Port Alberni from Victoria where I grew up. I worked as a Registered Massage Therapist for 8 years there and then I went to UBC for Midwifery. I spent my school placements in Victoria and Surrey BC and had a variety of experiences from solo Midwifery practices, large clinics, observing and assisting Obstetrician, General Physicians, Nurses and Child and Youth care workers.
Previous to having kids, I played field hockey and softball as much as possible. Now I am kept busy with work and my family but I do find time to enjoy my garden and cook from scratch now and then.
Please call me at 250-724-2535 or check out my facebook page- Sarah Bjorgan Registered Midwife Port Alberni to get to know me better and see if Midwifery is the right choice for you.
