Announcing: Documentary Film Project


The Centre for Rural Health Research is excited to announce that we are producing a documentary film about women’s experience with rural maternity services. Welcome to our videographer, Tamara Wojciechowska!

Here is our recruitment poster for the Tofino area:


Through this film, we want to raise awareness of what women and their families have to deal with in order to give birth, when living in a rural community in British Columbia. The film will also highlight the social dimension of what happens when a community loses local maternity care.

We believe this documentary project will create an impact to support better maternity services for women and their families in rural communities in BC and throughout Canada.

For over a decade, we have conducted extensive research and published numerous articles on various aspects of rural maternity care. Key publications include:
