Indigenous Community Advisory Circle and Community Advisory Committee

Have a voice in improving health outcomes during pregnancy, birth and for newborns

Perinatal Services BC is looking for patient partners and family members who are interested in joining a PSBC Indigenous Community Advisory Circle and a PSBC Community Advisory Committee to support projects such as updating prenatal education and health promotion materials and other projects.

Learn more about the opportunities by clicking on each of the headers below.

We respect, value and seek opportunity to engage with Indigenous patient partners in the spirit of reciprocity, and it is with humbleness and humility that we recognize and value knowing how our work lands for Indigenous peoples and if they meet the needs of our patients and clients.

As members of the Indigenous Community Advisory Circle, patient partners will support:

  • The development of prenatal education and resources that recognize pregnancy and birth as a sacred, natural and culturally significant celebration in a family's life

  • Creating resources for prenatal education that are inclusive of cultural diversity, gender identity and gender expression

  • Navigating a digital platform to best suit your needs

  • Providing insights and experiences with prenatal education: what went well and were there any gaps experienced?

  • Projects on virtual health, screening and pathways of care

  • Updating health care provider resources

  • Reviewing parent facing resources

  • Being involved with patient and provider education

  • Assisting and establishing health promotion and disease prevention materials
