You might be asking yourself, “Why does Prairie Midwives have a dude administrator?”, well, I will tell you.
After a two year run as a professional brewer at the inception of the Troubled Monk Brewery, I took a year-long parental leave with our youngest boy. Being married to a midwife (Jenn) that owns a midwifery practice, and Brewing Beer are two jobs that don’t have much flexibility. Knowing this, I decided to take over the administration role in 2018 at Prairie Midwives to give me the flexibility to still work and be a part-time stay at home Dad.
My role at Prairie Midwives and my office are ever changing. Although I still get, “Is this Prairie Midwives, do I have the right number?” often, I really enjoy working with the midwives and midwifery clients. Helping Jenn and getting to see Prairie Midwives grow from just 2 to 8 midwives today has been pretty amazing. Outgrowing our old acreage location and moving Prairie Midwives into a historic building downtown Red Deer, has been one of my favourite aspects of the business. Being part of the Central Alberta community is pretty special.
