I’m Pamal, a Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Certified Lactation Consultant. I also currently work in an amazing clinic providing primary and maternity care, alongside physicians and midwives serving countless patients like you.
I began my career as a registered nurse in a surgical unit at Vancouver General Hospital, and then spent several years in labour and delivery at Surrey Memorial Hospital. There, I quickly realised my passion was working with families- during their pregnancies, throughout labour, delivery and during the new breastfeeding stage. I also wanted the ability to diagnose and treat my patients, in addition to providing nursing care. The NP degree was a perfect fit.
I can relate to some of your experiences first hand. I have three young kids, and the journey wasn’t always smooth when it came to making, growing, birthing and feeding them. Endometriosis, in vitro fertilization (IVF), a first pregnancy filled with complications and low milk supply were some of my challenges. My journey also involved a Cesarean section followed by two vaginal births after C-section (VBAC).
Whatever your journey involves, you have my help.
