My journey towards midwifery began a few years following the birth of my son. I had never imagined that my experiences with pregnancy and birth would extend beyond that of my own, until I witnessed the incredible home birth of a dear friend of mine. My eyes were opened to the supportive, informative, evidence-based care that midwives provide, and I was left wanting to experience more. The idea of assisting women in making autonomous choices during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum was so inviting. As I researched midwifery in Canada and around the world, it quickly became evident that I had a yearning to support women throughout their birthing experiences.
My search for my own path brought me to Calgary, where I was fortunate enough to be accepted into, and graduate from, the Bachelor of Midwifery program at Mount Royal University.
I have been blessed to have such an incredibly supportive partner, Greg, who through his love and commitment has helped me to accomplish my dream of becoming a midwife. My son, Larkin, thankfully has also been unbelievably understanding along this path, and for both of them I am endlessly thankful.
I feel incredibly privileged to be given the opportunity to be a part of such an intimate and transformative time in women’s lives, and am beyond excited to work with women and their families throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. I am thrilled to be a part of the Aurora Midwifery team, and look forward to spending time and getting to know all of the families with whom I will have the pleasure of sharing this special time in their lives.
