I have been lucky to live in Saskatoon almost my whole life. I am an obstetrician and my practice allows me to help support women and families in pregnancy and delivery. I have met women and families from all over the city and province and I see their strength while facing very difficult times in their health and home life. Their resilience and optimism is inspiring. Sanctum 1.5 is going to provide much needed support to women facing the greatest hardships at a time of life that should be filled with the greatest joy - the birth of a child. I have accepted the Survivor Challenge because I want Sanctum 1.5 to be a safe, supportive and effective bridge to the best health outcomes for mothers and their newborns. I look forward to the challenges and I know my 36 hour experience will make me uncomfortable, scared, and uncertain at times. This is the real life of many of these women. Hopefully, I can reach at least some of their successes. Thank you for your support.
