Plum ~ Ripe with Possibilities

ripe plumsThe name “Plum Midwifery” came to us after a night of brainstorming around a big table surrounded by close friends. We are so fortunate to have our name born out of such a lovely gathering of people who genuinely care about our clients’ health, midwifery and our clinic specifically. Plum has a variety of meanings beyond the delicious fruit most people have a positive association with of summers spent in orchards, of fruit stands and picnics.

Cheekily we liked that it also meant “an excellent or desirable thing.” We strive to have your care with us meet such a standard. In some Asian cultures women eat plums before birth as they are believed to help them through the process of childbearing — making it all the more fitting a name for midwives helping clients in childbirth. We liked the symbolic imagery; the round, juicy ripe fruit, like the round juicy ripe belly of an expectant mother. We felt it symbolized that both our practice and the clients in our care were ripe with possibilities.

Full midwifery services are provided at both our clinics in Comox and Cumberland.

Our Clinics

clinic roomsPlum Midwifery is a space to relax, have a cup of tea and take an active role in your pregnancy, birth and postpartum. By setting our practice in a more intimate setting (adjacent to one of the midwives houses in the woods) and by giving care that is compassionate and heartfelt we hope to encourage a sense of ease when you come to your appointments.

We offer midwifery services that honour our clients and their families as the primary decision makers. You’ll find our 1/2 hour appointments give you the time you need to have your questions answered, to be informed of your care choices, and to form a meaningful relationship with the midwives who will catch your baby. We welcome clients to bring their partners and any family members they want to include in their care.

Our Comox clinic is located two-minutes from Point Holmes Beach and the Lazo Marsh; we invite you to combine your appointment with a stroll on the beach or a tramp through the forest. It is situated 10-minutes from downtown Comox, and 10-minutes from the new Comox Valley Hospital, at 101 Lerwick Road, Courtenay.

Our satellite clinic is located in the heart of Cumberland and shares space within the Cumberland Physio and Yoga (in the historic Frelone Grocery’s building) on Dunsmuir Avenue. After your appointment, enjoy a walk on the historic Dunsmuir Avenue, explore the many hiking and biking trails in the area or visit one of the quaint eateries located in the Village.
