I am a registered midwife in British Columbia, Canada looking to find work in Hawaii as a midwife and wondering if it's possible?
Here where I live, I am registered under the College of Midwives, paid by our government medical plan and have hospital privileges which allows me to attend births at both home and in hospital. We are fairly supported while in hospital when needing to consult or transfer care to an OB and have nurses who act as seconds at the birth. I pay a yearly insurance which covers me. My practice partner and I take approximately 8 clients a month which allows us a very comfortable living.
I know your medical system is different than ours but does this sound similar to your work environment?
Do you think it would be possible for a Canadian midwife to work on one of the islands?
How many births do you attend a month and how much on average do you make? Is it enough to support your family?
If it is possible, do you have any suggestions on how I go about looking for a job?
Any help would be appreciated! If Hawaii doesn't work then I guess we have to look elsewhere in the world, any suggestions?
