Ruth Comfort

Registered Midwife, Assistant Head of Midwifery at BC Women's Hospital

Ruth completed her midwifery training at the University of British Columbia in 2006. After a few years practicing midwifery in the Great White North she returned to her home town of Vancouver. You wouldn’t know it because she works hard to hide her accent, but she is actually a Maritimer! In addition to being a practicing midwife, Ruth is Head of Quality Assurance at the College of Midwives of BC. She is also the mother of two boys, Louis and Ezra. When she is not working you can find her chasing her boys at top speed along the beach. Ruth is thrilled to be working at the South Community Birth Program and can’t wait to meet you.

Ruth is on sabattical in 2019.
