Édith B. Pinet: A Midwife
Pope Museum
Grande-Anse , New Brunswick


   At 20 years old, Édith B.
Pinet was living her dream:
she was enrolled in the
nursing program in St-Jean
d'Iberville, Quebec, to
obtain her nursing
certificate. Her role as a
midwife was one of her main
occupations. Her smile, her
availability, her gentleness

and her understanding
comforted many sick people.
   She was awarded many
medals. Her greatest
contribution was in the field
of health. Édith B. Pinet
helped deliver more than
3,000 children. Touching the
lives of many people and
families, these interviews

and the images they provide
recount the life of this
important woman.
