Maternity Care for BC

Recognizing the importance providing obstetrical care in practices, Maternity Care for BC (MC4BC) supports family doctors to strengthen their obstetrical knowledge and skills through hands-on experience, peer mentorship, and financial compensation.

GPs who currently provide (or intend to provide) maternity services, including antepartum, labour and delivery, postpartum, and/or breast-feeding care, are eligible to participate in MC4BC.

MC4BC is customizable to meet GPs where they are in their careers. Participants embark on financially supported, self-directed learning journeys to gain the experience and training best suited for them. The program offers participants flexibility with learning objectives, training schedules, training locations, and timelines.

Nearly 100% of participants surveyed agree that MC4BC increased their confidence to practice obstetrics.
