Dr. Buhler completed all her medical training in Vancouver. Her thirty-plus years of volunteer work and family practice with a focus on women’s health has given her a strong connection to the birthing community in Vancouver.
She was a founding member of the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective in 1971 and has been an advocate for woman-centered care ever since. Later she played a role in the establishment of midwifery as a legal, regulated, and independent profession in B.C. She is the former Head of the Department of Family Practice at BC Women’s Hospital.
She has two children and loves to spend time with her family and friends hiking, skiing, kayaking, and canoeing–anything to get outdoors. Promoting and facilitating group care for pregnancy (see Connecting Pregnancy) and bringing Mindfulness meditation practice into pregnancy care are two of her current passions. She might be seen over in the corner with eyes lightly closed while waiting patiently for a baby to appear.
