Moira de Valence ( Family Physician )
Moira grew up and completed medical school in Toronto. She moved to British Columbia in 2015 to pursue residency training in Family Medicine at St. Paul’s Hospital and is now happy to call Vancouver home.
She worked in Vancouver, rural BC and the Northwest Territories in full scope family medicine, low-risk obstetrics, and addictions medicine before starting her practice. Moira now practices at 8th Avenue Family and Maternity Care, and at Sheway Maternity Clinic, which provides wraparound social and medical support for people using substances during pregnancy and their families.
Moira continues to be amazed by the many transitions (big and small!), the moments of humor, and the depth of love that come with welcoming a child into the world. She is honoured to walk with you as you go down this path.
Outside of clinic, you can find Moira biking or trail running in any sort of weather, enjoying a good book with a cup of tea, or spending time with family and friends.
