The TBC has given me a safe space to practice! Midwives are always welcomed and supported. Our clients are welcomed and supported. From the Birth Centre Aides to the management, there is never a time that I feel unsupported…. Their support to midwives, clients, and this beautiful and meaningful birth space is invaluable. Thank you TBC, chi miigwetch!!

To be able to work at the TBC as an Indigenous-led birthing space means I can provide culturally safe care in an environment that feels safe, like home, for me, my community, and the families I provide care for.

It means working in a space that exists … to re-establish a deep spiritual and ancestral connection to this part of the world, while creating an opportunity for folks to access clinically excellent care in a space that actively seeks to decolonize families’ intrapartum care experiences.

It is important to me to support Indigenous people, and have a safe space to incorporate pregnancy, birthing and infant teachings that are important to them; as well as to have family present and a space for ceremony.

Respect and love it. It reminds us the connection between human and natural world that we … often ignored. The low-risk or healthy pregnant people and midwives can benefit a lot from the space provided.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn constantly over time from Indigenous midwives and other cultural leaders about my role in upholding Indigenous rights and good relationships.
