Reason 2: Midwifery....by Larysa Valachko

Reason 2: Ottawa midwifery groups and collectives
Doctors are life savers and help us recover when we are sick but a healthy person most of the time tries to avoid hospitals and doctor’s office, so do many women with normal pregnancies in Ottawa. Ottawa has great midwifery groups which provide care to a woman during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum.
Appointments at a midwife’s office resemble more a friendly consultation in a cosy room with soft sofas, chairs, toys and books about pregnancy, labor and birth which the clients are welcome to borrow. Appointments last at least 30 minutes or longer, and of course, parners and children are always welcome to join the mom-to-be. Often fathers can listen to the baby’s heart or feel the position of the baby’s head that surely makes them be closer to their partners and babies and understand better the pregnancy and future birth, so they can help the woman to go through birthing with less stress and more love and care.
The following three principles are the basis of the Ontario model of midwifery: choice of birthplace (home or hospital), continuity of care (during pregnancy, labor, birth and first 6 weeks postpartum), and informed choice (I loved it!).
  1. Informed choice.
I would like to start with this principle as it is the one that attracts me most in midwifery care. I am sure that many people have felt awkward and modest to ask million questions to the doctor about their treatment. “Doctors know better”, that’s what I have heard when questioning the prescribed treatment to me or my family members.
Well, midwives are great because they always “teach” their clients about the pregnancy, labor and birth, educate the woman about the process and always welcome questions! “The pregnant woman is the primary decision maker. The midwives will provide her with the assistance in getting the resources that help to make an informed choice and realize the benefits and risks of possible courses of care” (http://www.midwiferycollectiveofottawa.ca/).
  1. Choice of birth place.
The woman can choose to have birth at home or in a hospital.
If home birth is arranged, midwives will come there in any weather condition. They will assist at the birth, clean the room and help the woman to get a warm shower and get dressed, make sure that everybody is safe and happy and leave the family to enjoy their new member.
Hospital births are more common, although there are also very “informal”: the woman decides how she wants things to be arranged in the room and who should be present at birth and what and when should be done to her and her baby. (For example, my curiosity about placenta and how it looks and works, was satisfied by a worth of Discovery Channel lecture from my midwife.) After delivering the baby in a hospital, the woman can either stay there or go home.
  1. Continuity of care
Either home or hospital birth were arranged, midwives care goes beyond that: they visit the newborn and the mom on day 1, 3, 5 to check how they are doing, and also, provide assistance over the phone 24/7. It gives such a great sence of protection and not being left alone during first 6 weeks which are most pleasant but can be very challenging for new parents.
The follow-up appointments are arranged in the midwives’ office and happen at the end of the 2nd, 4th and 6th weeks. After that the woman and the baby are discharged and provided with public lilbrary certificate for a baby book, a bag with the library logo, and some booklets. It can be very sad to leave the midwife who has become so close with your family, so don’t forget to give a friendly visit to her office a couple of months later.

100 reasons to live in Ottawa, ON by Larysa Valachko.

100 reasons to live in Ottawa, ON
The intention of this series is to present easy to “digest” articles about everyday things and activities which make Ottawa a great place for newcomers and their families.
Reason 1: Freedom of choosing a caregiver for a pregnant woman.
As a new mom, I chose this reason to open the 100 reasons series as it is the one that convinced me that my husband and I had made the right choice when selecting Ottawa as a city to settle down in Canada.

Unlike in some other provinces, pregnant women in Ontario have the right to choose between an obstetrician or a midwife to be their primary caregiver during pregnancy, and in spite of the choice made, the services are paid by the OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan).
An obstetrician is a special doctor who takes care of the woman during her pregnancy and helps at birthing. Obstetricians take turns in being available during labor in the hospital, that means that the woman has a big chance to be assisted not by the obstetrician who looked after her pregnancy. These doctors are experts in dealing with different complications during pregnancy, labor, and birth. If a woman chooses an obstetrician to follow her pregnancy, she will deliver the baby in the hospital. An obstetrician and hospital birth is a great choice for those who have to rely on medical assistance or who feel safer by being surrounded by impressive medical equipment and staff.
Although many people will agree that doctors’ uniforms and their clinics unwittingly make the visitors feel less healthy. For a woman who has a normal pregnancy, it might be important to keep the feeling of being healthy and capable to give birth without going through stressful and often unnecessary medical exams and interventions. In this case a midwife is often the best choice to go for.

Work: How to Learn About Your Occupation in Canada

By Efim Cheinis
The majority of Canadian immigrants are university, college or trade school graduates and have years of work experience. Is it necessary to start your professional career in Canada from the very beginning? Not at all!
Many newcomers may continue working in their trades in Canada. But, to do so successfully you have to be prepared and do your homework. What does this mean? First of all you need to carefully learn about the Canadian job market and find out how your occupation is classified. You also have to research educational and employment requirements needed to continue your career in Canada.
The best way to gather all of this information is by getting acquainted with the official Canadian trade directory – National Occupational Classification (NOC). Ask for NOC in libraries or at Employment Resource Centers and you will get 2 books. The first is called “National Occupational Classification. Index of Titles”. There are almost 40,000 Canadian jobs, listed alphabetically, in this small book. Each occupation is followed by a unique four-digit code. Look for your job title if you know it, and you will find your occupational code. Then, take the second book, “National Occupational Classification. Occupational Description” and using the code from the Index of Titles, find your occupational description, which includes:
  • industries and workplaces where the occupation is found,
  • examples of titles which are commonly used within the group,
  • the most significant duties of this occupation,
  • educational and employment requirements.
If you do not know exactly what your job title is, look in the second book. You will find 10 types of skills:
  1. Management occupations
  2. Business, finance and administration (such as accountants, secretaries, office clerks)
  3. Natural and applied sciences (engineers, technicians, technologists, etc.)
  4. Health (physicians, pharmacists, nurses, dentists)
  5. Social science, education, government service and religion (lawyers, teachers, social workers, ministers of religion, paralegals)
  6. Art, culture, recreation and sport (Librarians, Journalists, Musicians, Graphic Designers, Coaches)
  7. Sales and service (Retail and Wholesale People, Insurance and Real Estate Representatives, Cooks, Barbers, Cashiers, Cleaners, Babysitters)
  8. Trades, transport and equipment operators (Machinists, Tool and Die Makers, Electricians, Plumbers, Carpenters, Mechanics, Drivers)
  9. Occupations unique to primary industry (Farmers, Oil, Gas and Mine Workers)
  10. Occupations unique to processing, manufacturing and utilities (Machine Operators, Assemblers, Laborers)
