Alison BScN

I have a deep love of working with families. This started in my role as a doula, and by providing care and education to special needs children.

Since completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UBC in 2010 I have thrived in BC Women’s Birthing Program, working as a RN and Charge Nurse in Labour & Delivery and the OR.

I love how each birth and postpartum experience is unique, and enjoy tailoring my care to individual needs and desires. I also enjoy supporting the professional development of others, and do so as a preceptor and mentor at BC Women’s, as well as in my role of Clinical Instructor with BCIT’s Perinatal Specialty Program. South Community Birth Program is my most recent professional endeavour, I joined this fantastic team in May 2017.

Although I am proud of my professional life, my favourite thing to do is hang with my two beautiful children! I also enjoy knitting, being active, travelling and reading a good book.

I'm so grateful that I've been able to connect and work with families as a registered nurse over the past decade.

I feel so fortunate to have joined the Labour & Delivery team at BC Women’s hospital as an RN in 2011. It’s been a great honour spending time with families at their most vulnerable, meeting them where they are at, and reminding them of how strong they are. Having babies is wonderful, messy, frustrating, and challenging. I’ve been there and I’ve worked with hundreds of families who have been there. Every birth is remarkably different and special.

In addition to working at BC Women’s in the OR, I work with the amazing team at South Community Birth Program supporting and educating families through their first 6 weeks postpartum.

It’s also been a privilege to have worked as a public health RN in the community and to have coached and mentored incoming Labour & Delivery nurses as a Clinical Instructor with BCIT’s Perinatal Specialty Program.
