Work with Us
The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre is led by a Board of Directors, made up of midwives and community members, and run by a small, dedicated staff team. Midwives practicing in Ottawa have appointment at the Birth Centre, allowing them to offer this option to their clients.
The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre is currently hiring an Acting Executive Director (maternity leave contract). Click here for the full posting.
In general, we are unable to accept volunteers or co-op students at the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre due to limited staff capacity.
Board & Committees
From time to time, positions become available for qualified individuals on our Board of Directors, or on one of our Committees. Those openings will be posted here, and shared through our social media channels.
Community Placements for Midwifery Students
The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre is pleased to offer community placements for Midwifery Education Program students. These one month placements offer students the chance to learn more about how birth centres work, to work alongside our staff team, to undertake special projects, and to observe births at the Centre.
If you would like to find out more about a community placement at the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, please contact us.
Applying for appointment
All new midwives who wish to have appointment at the Birth Centre must apply through our official appointment process. To begin that process, please contact us and we will provide you with more information.
